The Hidden Hours

there are moments that come to me when I am only myself by myself when I bask in the solitude and silence apart from the outside world wanting for nothing more than perhaps a book or some soft music or the backs of my eyelids or simply the purity of the moonlight or the sunlight and suddenly I find that I am everywhere and nowhere at once like space and I am as pleased by these occasions as anything else in life and I do my best to savor them trying to keep them knowing they will pass like most things pass but nevertheless I embrace them letting them overtake me these hidden hours of freedom

misty morning
the mountain swallowed up
by the fog
