Out of Focus

By John Aldred

And there the moment, out of focus,
Waits.
Awaits the clarity of time.

That blurred snapshot
Hidden in the mind
Until experience brings understanding
Brings sharpness to the vague edges
Adds substance to the uncertain core
And so the moment waits
Until evolution considers
The age is opportune to sharpen
That moment out of,
And into, focus.
