A Taste For The Moment

She sat for a moment and tried to capture the sense of stillness around her. The timid nature of the moment was hard to grasp, it flowed past her senses like a quickening of ether lighting the mind. There was the passage of time like a breath being taken in for the first time, there was emotion ebbing and flowing like swelling shadows in the night, there was light filling the void with all it’s brilliance. And there. In between it all was her. The body. The mind. The single thought chasing it all. A momentary glimpse into her own infinite nature. Then it was gone.
