Momentary Silence – Notthedane56



When the day
goes away
somewhere to the west
I guess,

The sky still reflects
the light, less bright
fading, fading away

My momentary silence
when my mind stopped rotating
stopped revolving around the sun
today’s sun,

The stars await in the wings
while I
attempt to gather my thoughts
the day gone by, and I

Breathe in, then out
my heart beats without knowing
the sky changes without knowing
it, and I

And I wait
for the spectacle anew
my anticipation lies to the east
you see,

Those of you, westward
seeing what I saw, lived, breathed
my day then, your day now

while the sun shines
while your heart beats

while you breathe in
and out
and in,
and out….



This piece is the work of Notthedane56. You can find a lot more of his poetry, fiction and humor on his main site Everything in and around Denmark and on his new blog My House at the Sea.

    1. I know, right? 🙂 I’d invite you to visit Notthedane56’s blog, but I am pretty sure I bumped into you on his main site. The “My House at the Sea” is new though… Short stories that are well worth a look 🙂
