In the other room, he had turned the bag upside down and there were memories lying scattered all around him. I stood there standing by the door observing him as he was arranging those memories on the floor.

Memories from the days when he started walking always intending to go bare foot.

Memories from the days we spent together roaming around the town on foot. He wouldn’t agree to get tucked up in the stroller and so I happened to push the stroller with one hand and held his small hand with the other.

A Moment


That thing in your eyes
had me fixed in it
Was it a lake
I drowned within it
Was it a mirror
I reflected myself in it
Was it a way
I traveled long in it
Was it a clear glass
I could see through in it
Whatever it was
It was a moment
I knew I existed in it
