In the moment…

I want to stare out this window.
I want to drink my Jasmine tea
with sweet honey
and listen to the wind howling
and whistling
through the gaps in the sliding doors.

I don’t want to slice at this moment.
I want to be in the moment.

I want to gaze about the room.
I want to taste my buttery croissant
with flaky layers
and smell the lilies decorating
and nestling
amongst the all-white flowers in the central vase.

I don’t want to slice at this moment.
I want to be in the moment.

I want to think of my days here.
I want to replay my experiences
with Jeremy
and remember the conversations sprinkling
and weaving
throughout the sightseeing in the week.

I don’t want to slice at this moment.
So I will leave this slice-in-verse
and return to the poetry of this place.
