Sketch by Peycho Kanev

Feel this here: jaws snapping
in the dark,
the owl hoots out the shape
of the night,
fresh wind stirs,
time slowly stretches,
the moment stands still,
stillness stands momentarily,
stars appear on the lid of
transient world
and nothing else –
the future looks deep in
our eyes and there are depths
to look into.
