Sometimes I wish it was possible to
freeze time and live in a single moment
for forever. Like today,
today I stuck my head out the open car
window, listened to the leaves crackle
under the tires, saw a cyclist on
the side of the road. Marveled
at the red-orange-yellow trees against the backdrop
of the blue, blue sky.
I wish it was possible to freeze time for forever, but until then
I’ll just laugh when people ask me
why I’m smiling at the sky today.
