November 16

Pause

_____________________________________

On my morning commute

I stopped at the sign

Fleeting moments captured

*

Just like every damn day

But today was different

Translucent, transcendent

*

Just like every damn day

The sky was bright, so was the sign

Seconds stalled to permanence

*

As the frost slipped down

Revealing alarming red

Temporary forever
