six word fridays: seconds

11 02 2011

a moment – all there is between

one breath and the next. respirated,

flowing between, around and amidst us.

spooled by time into something tangible;

knitted into thoughts we can touch,Six Word Fridays

shape into memories. imprinted. in the

steady passing of seconds – tick tock.


It’s Six Word Fridays again – go have some six-word fun at Making Things Up.

Wow, I love the abstraction here. It’s a microanalysis of life. I also love the images of flow, spooling, knitting, imprinting. Very beautiful!

Thanks Molly. This entry just spilled out of me. It doesn’t always go that way.

I am swimming in your words.
Spooling, flowing, between and betwixt… timely.

Hi Kate,

That line is how I think of motherhood. All these moments with my daughter spooled into deeply felt and cherished memories.

I love how this slows the reader down to precisely ONE second, especially with the use of the word ‘knitted’. Thank you for this!
