shadow moment

was it all for one instant stopped and made
and don’t we try to stop it all again

hold still for one perfect moment
touch some simple unchanging thing

rein the sun and erect a heavy stone
then trace its shadow into place

return one day and hold your breath
watch the shadow fill the marks you made

Recorded and engineered in Edmonton (15 Dec 2008) by Ray Buxton, freelance CBC sound engineer. Keyboards by Dennis Meneely of Tacoy Ryde. Text and voice by runran.
