Al-Muhsi: The Work of the Moment

Stained Glass Window

Not the woulda, coulda, shoulda,
Not the yesterdays and tomorrows,
but rather,
the right heres and nows,
when the muted light brings out the blue
in the stained glass just so,
and the little dog raises her head,
eyes meeting yours just here,
and your thumb brushes over 
the twisted old rose of Alpaca and silk yarn
just like this--
when "just" is a full word,
perfect and complete
and deliciously enough.
