Shadows and Sparks
“In my adult life, the time I have actually lived inside the present moment would amount to no more than a single day. If only I could have lived it in a single day; it would have thrown its light into all the others, like a brazier in a dark arcade. Instead I find my way by sparks, and what they barely make visible.”
The Book of Shadows - Don Paterson*
*Can someone please explain to me how I’m only just finding this poet now? Incredible.
