What They Say

March 17, 2013

They say, fire is the inspired hour;
ice the minute left behind; water
the years—all the years;
and air…
air explains how time can stand so still,
while the breeze brings
the scent of apple pie through
the open window
and the open window…
the open window smiles
and counts the days until the spring–
like they might be ours always.
