how the hours slide -
colored ribbons curling
folding back upon themselves 
- a tangle of light
you're not even sure is real -
then it's gone and you know
you had something
though you never had it
in your hand

  1. Lovely metaphor of "tangle of light", and the hours as ribbons, with a perfect pairing of painting with words; they elucidate each other.
