Flash in Time

For in a moment you suspended time
with your soft verses, synchronized in rhyme.
My ears were longing for expressions new;
the hours shared together were too few.
Our eyes connected with a flash of light;
a flash you see as twilight turns to night.
Some say it’s green, but none the less, it’s bright
when eyes connect, the thrill, so real, so right.
Your five o’clock scent seared a memory,
that will burn forever in history.
Tongues dancing on the moonlight’s heated skin,
 igniting passion’s aching need – within.
Was it a dream of my desired want?
Throughout the day those deep memories haunt,
for it was just a flash in time gone past –
but forever a memory to last.

    Yes some times some thoughts and desires flash a wish that stays within…
    Love your lines…
    ‘burned a memory in my lip that stayed
    Tongues move smoothly as they danced a tango ‘
    Your words … so beautiful…

    I very much enjoyed this poem – so very intimate and moving – your form is wonderful and houses your content beautifully – the metre of the piece ensures a smooth read – those flleting moments – if only they could last or we could experience them over – i guess we try to do this through art and you have managed an incredible job here

    over all a magic experience – you have a clear and romantic poetic voice which conveys your stlye wonderfully – a real pleasure.

    • September 16, 2011 at 6:04 am

      It was a real pleasure to read your comment Poppy. Yes. I would love to experience again some highlights in my life. Sure! I agree that art is an attempt to do that, not for only the artist but also the viewer. Have a great day!

  28. September 15, 2011 at 4:15 pm

    Was it a dream of my desired wants?

    Throughout the day that deep memory haunts,

    for it was just a flash in time gone past –

    but forever a memory to last.

    this is great ending and really sends the poem in the right direction – and expands its meaning and interest – you are clearly a passionate writer – and can deliver poetry of this kind with clarity and emotion and its not over sentimental or icky – just fine writing.

    your skill as a poet is always noted evry time i visit – your technical skill/gifts are always tight and present your content in a great light.

      Aaron. You always leave such wonderful comments. Thank you for your compliment about my writing. Thanks Aaron.

    dang sounds like a memory i would cling to…smiles. 3rd stanza there are tense issue in the tongues move line….not sure you need the just in the opening line…just a few little clips…will let your crit-ers do the most…i think it is well constructed though….

    • September 16, 2011 at 5:59 am
