Evening. A poem by Sharon Jones

At home, in this liminal
space, time slows.
The pace of things

may never be the same
now semi-quavers
are minims and minims

semi-breves. How the music
of what happens breathes.
We live and move and have

our being. Each day, look
to the sky, where stars,
in silent lullaby, shine still.
