That Fleeting Moment 11/09

Time is a river, love is an ocean,

   Friendships are like seasonal streams,

       And your thoughts, an alpine lake,


Take a breath, you are the wind,

   Traveling at the speed of light,

       Entering into your solitude, your solace,

                                   With a whisper,


Softly, subtly, barely stirring a ripple,

   That footstep on your conscience,

       Leaves a gouge, a wound,

                                On tender flesh,


Opening like a rose in the meadow,

   Scarlett… With a baited breath,


A chasm, a gulf, 10 miles wide,

   Between my desire and the prize…


And yet, right there,

   for a fleeting moment,

              There was temptation in your eyes.
