September 1, 2015 by PrairieChat One Perfect Moment – Clarence Holm The sky was light And the moon was full, The great horned owl had just begun to soar. I’m waited on the schoolyard swings for childhood friends who promised they’d sneak out to play. Rusted chains, weathered seats Gravel ruts beneath my feet. Standing tall I pump and pumped, When the earth let go a friend. Up-up I flew Where the starlight held me still. A perfect moment of my life Stored for my eternal dreams. And then the moment over I drifted for a while. Swinging with measured strokes Till darkness came to stay. No children came to share the night And I walked slowly home. But I will always remember when The night time was my throne.
