Momentary Light – a poem by Tim Dwyer

MOMENTARY LIGHT                                                                           
Nearing sixty years,
as afternoon light
shines through the alleys
of the city buildings,
I cheer the ten-year-old boy
who races the bus 
to the corner of Hope Street
and wins.

Tim Dwyer’s chapbook is entitled Smithy Of Our Longings (Lapwing). His poems have recently appeared in Cyphers and the anthology of the Irish Poetry Chair, Hold Open The Door, and forthcoming in Atrium. He recently moved from the United States and now lives in Bangor, Northern Ireland.
