chagall backdrop

We all get smaller
as the universe expands
the world fades both ends

Life’s center looms large
dimmed creation’s fire is quenched
where no sighs exist

Long still reckoned pause
deep rumble, ground gears, next shift
gentle momentum

Young girls with flourish
fan pleated flower bouquets
start us up again
