Frozen in Time

Just for a moment,

They are frozen in time.

Their spirits have passed,

Their mark left in grime.


A quick sudden frost,

And footprints are left.

To mark someone’s passing,

Do not be bereft.


They simply walked by,

On a day in their life.

Mud took a snapshot,

A moment of strife.


Locked for a second,

And then frozen in place.

Captured in pictures,

For a moment of grace.


Time is immutable,

They tell me that’s true.

But I know the facts,

Truly I do.


Time is a moment,

A second in space.

It moves ever forward,

At its own leisure pace.


But it can be captured,

And kept for all time.

By the eye of a man,

And a woman of rhyme.



Once again I am inspired by a picture by Dan. He and his dog Maddie provide me with such pleasure on an ongoing basis. You can visit him at:      You will never be disappointed!
