The Veil of Time is Thin Today

The veil of time is thin today

All at once, I am, all at once
A little girl in a bunny rabbit suit braving snowflakes on a wintery Massachusetts night,
A teenager, black pointy hat on head, at a party in the woods, crunchy leaves beneath my feet,
A new mom figuring out how to turn white waffle pjs into a Dalmatian suit, sewing felt ears onto a white cotton cap,
A middle-aged woman walking through town in kitten ears, admiring other peoples kids’ window paintings,
And just around the corner, I sense a crone with a basket of candy, a frivolous hat and a joyful heart
The veil of time is thin today.  
All at once, I am, all at once.
