Altered perception


Michaela Sagatova – “New Beginnings At The Ends Of The Earth”


Time and space dissolve,

moons and planets

draw near—

we are not alone.

What is invisible

becomes palpable,

love ethers

permeate empty space,

spirit realms open

an arm’s length away.

Broad snowflakes

drift gently down—

imitating a snow globe,

a frost-framed window,

a greeting card.

A young mind

time travels for

a flash reunion

behind scratched spectacles—

what was then joins now,

at least, for a moment.
