The Memory of Happiness

The trick, the old man said,
is to still time,
to hold both ends together
and ever so slowly, so gently,
press them together
Till there is no difference, no distance,
between the past and the future,
no present even.
And then
you no longer have to wait
for the long view of time
to recognize these moments
as the happy ones.
