Something Big

There’s something happening.

A sparkle in the twilight.

A shimmer on the horizon.


change comes in,

and we don’t even notice it.

It grows across us,

like moss on a tree,

or creeps up our beaches,

like a grey tide.





change comes,

like a fist to the face.




It catches us off guard;

even our most vigilant sentinels,

and it’s all over.

That’s the way it is, now.


I’m not sure

what this new thing is.

Is it a slow roll,

or is it an immovable object?

All I know for sure,

is something is happening.

Something big.
