There was Once a Time...

There was once a time when the world felt like light streaming through the top branches of the trees of a forest, trickling in like warmth and kindness and gentle shadow. 

    It was a moment and an eon, the blink of an eye and centuries.

    There was once a time when the world felt like ice piercing through darkness like stabs and slashes, hitting down like pain and wounds and sorrow.

    It, too, was a moment and an eon, the blink of an eye and centuries.

    There was once a time when the world felt like the smeared blur of fog spread across glass, seeping into a being like slow worry and curbed ambitions and slow chaos.

    Yet again, this too was a moment and an eon, the blink of an eye and centuries.

   Once the world looked in on itself, and weighed and measured all that it felt and thought that it might break. In the end, it didn't break. It lived.
