That Missing Link

A step ahead

A step behind

The motion foreign

The distance blind

 

To look then forward

While looking back

The moment flounders

The line goes slack

 

The past—the future

Regret and hope

A sun now darkened

Your shadow gropes

 

A step ahead

A step behind
That missing link

  —still yours to find

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: September, 2015)
