"NOW...LIVE!"

I place a tree...there.

I place a sky...here.

I add a bird...
I...subtract a bird.

I alter a mountain
place it to the left...to the right.

I let the little stream run.

I add a sun.
( turn it up).

I walk between
the spaces between seconds

check each moment is
- perfect.

Only then do I allow
time to

unfurl
flap in the breeze.

Then I stop it all.

I adjust a a molecule
or two.

Place you at
the centre

of the big green field
you in your dress of

bright blue.

Then I, like a long ago
Sultan

or a third-rate magician

command the memory:

"Now, live!"
