The Moment of Change

by Brenda Louise Lewis

I was
in one earth-shaking
thunderous moment.
Two billowing exploding
towers of smoke
shattered invincibility,and 
confirmed my mere mortality.
Duo, pillaring towers of smoke,
shall remain painted
on my memories canvas.
Life forever changed, 
for me,and 
for thousands of
precious people.
I was planning my ife,when
as the toppling
towering walls
crumbled violently
before my eyes,
so to did illusions,
of more time...
to wait,
to do, 
to grow,
to give,and
to love.
Waiting for life to unfold - ended,
in one catastrophic moment,and 
with dust plumed reminders,
it's all so clear,
live life now,
live life urgently,
