One Day

Is it two dimensional to feel
that time has slowed today
that sun and moon have lost
their life long practiced way.

Graceful clouds have come to stay
attracted by the empty sky
or by sheer happiness

Because there is no war today
and every creature’s fed.

But only for one day.

For panic seizes everywhere
and measurements are made
it was an error, quickly fixed
and all is back in place.

Tomorrow, all is as it was, except
that we remember,
there was one time
such a day.
