Pack up a few moments, let's call it an hour, no let's call it six hours and for those six hours, stop the world for those few moments. No-one will notice, it is only six hours out of one hundred sixty-eight hours in the week. There are plenty left to be tainted and soiled, fractured and broken by the clumsy practices of eight billion people on this delicate, buckled Earth. 
 
So we are agreed, you will stop the world for those few moments and everything and everyone will stop too, mid-sentence, mid-life, mid fighting, mid hurting, mid forgetting to be caring, mid neglecting. 
 
So for those few moments, you call it six hours, I call it a few moments and for those few moments, I will know her. 
 
I will know her smile. I will know the sound of her laughter. I will know the smell of her hair. I will know the scent of her body. I will know the curve of her breast. I will know the softness of her skin. I will know the sensation of her joy. I will know the magnificence of her passion. I will know the sound of her gasping. I will know the rhythm of her breathing. I will know the moist warmth of her virtue. I will know her. 
 
We will look from the window onto a frozen world where neither the moon or the sun shines and yet both do with blinding glory. We will look from the window onto a frozen world and make a memory which carries us through the drudgery of life on this delicate, buckled Earth. 
 
For those few moments, the details don't matter, the agenda adjourned, the crises averted, the obstacles brushed aside, the glare of staring eyes blinded as for those few moments, you call it six hours, I call it a single breath in a lifetime of breathing and for those few moments, the air is sweeter in my lungs than honey from the hive. 
 
Pack up a few moments, let's call it an hour, no let's call it six hours and for those few moments, stop the world and let me know her...
