Did you see him standing there ?
His head up in the clouds
Eyes frosted in memory
Of events long lived
Now only a glimmer on the distant horizon

A smile twitches the corner f thin lips
Wrinkles almost hide his eyes as they squint
As if to see the past more clearly
He breathes easier
Sucking in the deep breaths of youth
The scent of possibility thick in the air

His right hand twitches
As if waving
The arm moves slowly
Seeking a hand to shake
While the left fist clenches and relax clench ...relax
Testing his hold on the present
