Days

So much can happen in a day

and so little

A collection of moments

20,000 breaths and three meals

maybe a lightning strike

A good morning kiss brushed across a forehead

A goodbye hug lingering in the airport lobby

A pile of junk mail

A handwritten letter pleading for grace

It takes only a moment for the tree to fall

the glass to break

the phone to ring

It takes 11 minutes to make a hardboiled egg

15 minutes to switch the laundry

5 minutes to burn the popcorn

1 minute to post a public comment

30 seconds to read the email that starts “thank you for your application but…”

1 second to slam a door

So much can happen in a day

and so little
