Oh Time, where did you go?

One moment

I am  playing in the woodpile

behind Uncle Quentin’s shed:

Chasing butterflies

Putting buttercups under my chin

Smelling the new mown hay.

The next moment, 

or so it seems,

I am an Elder

listening to 

a young woman’s dreams. 

Oh, Time,

where did you go?

I sit

and watch

the breeze in the trees.

Wind flowing

through me.

I am at ease.

However,

when

I come back 

into my body

I wonder

“Time, Where did you go?”
