Time of the snow




 It was a moment on Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009....
 

Time of the snow

She wanted to remember what time it was.
She knew, in years to come,
she would want to know the exact moment,
so she could recall it all.
All
the detail.
She would want to count it.
Minute by minute.

So she looked at the clock
and watched the snow falling,
out there,
deepening the coldness,
filling the world,
layer on layer
minute on minute
hour on hour.
 
She watched the minutes pile up,
while inside, time was still.
She knew the moment he went,
she felt the press if his hand on hers,
she looked at the snow,
she forgot the clock,
time froze,
she lost the moment.
