Poem: Mesmerized and Captured Moments
About the Poem
Mesmerize means; “hold the attention of (someone) to the exclusion of all else or so as to transfix them”. Notice, there is not a time limit so it can be moments or who knows how long. A photo is a captured image of one’s mind in a moment. The camera near instant grasps it. Amazing!
It may be seen by another as swift as a startled bunny hopping from a shrub. Those are moments in time. Yet, at the same time faster than a shooting star thought is unleashed while touches on emotion. Mesmerized by the photo above I sought to capture those moments with poetic verse.
Mesmerized and Captured Moments
Quiet waters awakened stirred endless thought and emotion.
Arrives mind’s frenzy scattered with reflections seeking,
A boat asks to be filled while offers refuge from hectic pace,
Mystically the heart beats sharing life’s boundless splendor,
A pier asks for children’s laughter as they dive and swim,
Strength, courage, wisdom enter new adventures, that lies ahead,
Two friends fishing poles in hand drift without anchor seeking dinner,
A whisper, subtle voice of nature shares today does offer discovery,
Oars grasped with life’s gift of guidance leads onward to serenity,
Hushed breath ask notice exuberance of time’s majestic mystery,
Row steadily onward toward life’s gifts of hopes led by dreams,
Reflections upon quiet waters brings peace of mind,
Thank you and a realization, a moment
Thank you to those who shared moments with this article. I thank the photographer, Sannel Larson, for giving permission to use her photo inspiring the poem. And, I would like to thank HubPage authors at HubPages.com for the photos shared with their articles. I realized each has presented moments of being mesmerized unleashing thought and emotion.
