Snapshots of A Someday, Maybe Life

Updated on November 26, 2013

Flashes

What is it that we get?

Flashes,

moments of color,

strung together,

sweet,

like sticky beads on a candy necklace.

Fragile just the same.


Smoke and chocolate,

tasted for a second,

on your mouth.

Crunching leaves,

hands clasped,

dodging mosquitos.

Snow,

cold beneath feet

cloves on the air

A flash of silver,

spied in tangled sheets.


Every tender moment forms a web,

delicate and dangerous,

ours alone.


We balance together on these moments.

Like so many stepping stones on a still pond.

Living forever in each moment.

Creating a path,

to another life,

another time.

      Your mind sounds like an interesting place to visit. I love the image of a person balancing on a web of their own experiences.

      You are a very sensitive and perceptive writer/poet as you 'see' things most other people don't and it always comes out in your beautiful writing courtesy of your heart and mind - and that's an unbeatable combination for any creative person.

      Crazy words and feelings, nothing! It is a depiction of the life that surrounds you in living color. Knowing how to express it as you do, is not what everyone can do. I salute you, and nod my head in agreement!
