(I) Prelude To The Past
(II) The Ultimate Quiet
(III) A Blizzard Of My Memories



The windshield explodes
Like a bomb packed with diamonds
There's a deafening silence
Time flows to a crawl
As the ballet of the impact
Spreads out across the blacktop
Angels dancing down like raindrops
In the air as they fall


So this is how it goes
So this is how it ends
A flatbed runs a red light
No time to comprehend
As a blizzard of my memories
Lights up like fireflies
In the sliver of an instant
In a flash before my eyes...

    General CommentThis is the first part of a seven-part suite entitled "A Flash Before My Eyes." The suite discusses the plight of an everyman being killed in a car accident, and watching the memories of his life reappear as he makes his exit from the physical world.
