Wear today loosely,
like your grandmother’s shawl
or a hat that keeps blowing away in the breezes.
Wear it gently,
and hold it like you hold a kite
the moment before you release it to wind.
Walk through these hours
the way you waded through the creek
or up and down the beach that day,
picking up smooth and shiny pebbles,
pocketing them for later.
Tiny stones of moments
to sift through your fingers,
testing their weight
and feeling their coolness,
to place in a tray on the table.
This one, you’ll say.
This. And this.
