Onward

one step finds the other, time in forward passage
leave us in want of more jeweled moments, yet how
photos, video, all memory replacements, find
us wanting, wishing for fragrances, caress, a smile

so onward we pace and

look up to the heavens for profundity
look down to our feet in show of sorrow
look ahead in quest of wonderment
look around eager for adventure

then stop

to find, as always, the most incomparable
cannot be captured, held, photographed
but can be placed into sense memory
recalled, instantly, washing way

death’s dust of fear
