Fleeting Passage (1974, 2022 comment)

by D Shapiro

Hi Precious Gang, (July, 2022)

I found a poem I wrote from 1974  while changing Shauna’s diapers (actually probably not while changing them, but afterwards, reflecting on it!) For those who have done it, you’ll get it; for those who will one day do it (Hi James, Liam, Nate, Jackson, and yes, even Skyla and Weston!) you’ll see:

Hands awkwardly fumble

to capture a moment of the

fleeting passage

Aw meaning on so many levels (sunrise, sunset, swiftly go the years….!:)
