even now, there is

even now, there is
a delicacy to the

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: delicacy

it’s a delicate

it’s a delicate

holds tonight
and maybe tomorrow

says very little

we woke up to
the truth that there
will always be
longing between
us, a surround-
sound of something
else calling
when hearts
are already
intricately tied

time tries on each
forecast as if they
were delicate
capes, not to be
messed with, balled
up nor wrinkled.

when given
the chance

the last layer of

we build memories

we build memories
on origami shelves, multi-
tiered, delicate.

reminder alone
gingerly shifts our
balance, pulls on
each minute like
they were loosening
petals
with seconds
to spare

there’s a song
for pruning, a
song for pinching
off, a song for
rinsing, and
a song for
delicately
alighting
