A Moment in Time

Updated on July 14, 2014

Demo #5

Afternoon blue fades, horizon pales

Grey skies clutch the clouds in autumn rain

His eyes strike like lightening, thunder rages

dwell within the shelter of embrace

raindrops lash upon lips

in ghostly dance the rising mist forms

beads of crystal lingering on warm skin

diving deeper, gasping for breath

his eyes drown me under surging waves

flooded by his fury, grasping at tides

in the sweetest sinking of my surrender.



Radiation Man

To my curious artist, who contemplates

angles with a discriminating eye

Brushing the canvas, he colors rainbows

ashen and black

Drowning in azure blue, I know the

angelic pout of a sensitive soul.

"What?" " When?" "Why?", he asks.

Looking up from the Gita, softly

I whisper "Namaste", smile and continue to read.

How can I explain the unknown?

Spiraling around our hearts

the universe.

Yin and Yang melt in embrace.

Each blink of an eye photographs a memory

captured in the mind.

Weaving his pictures

they are dark and obscure as night

He is sand lured by the waves of the sea

and what he sees is illusion

“All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.”
― Susan Sontag

Real

Each minute cell holds cosmic soul

Our fragile frame of fragmented stars

explodes on dusty brain, DNA debris

a blueprint of the universe

buried deep in the nucleus of being

We carouse distant galaxies

revolve about illusion sun

Illumined sparks as comets

glaze midnight skies.


Asleep, we are space travellers

with passports to the moon

dreaming reality.

TIME- HANS ZIMMER from the movie soundtrack of INCEPTION

Once the subject mainly of science fiction writers, time travel is being seriously considered by physicists such as Stephen Hawking. There is an alluring strangeness to the cosmic symphony that may encompass time travel, higher dimensions, quantum superspace, and parallel universes. A moment in time is NOW.

    Namaste!

    These poems are gems in a necklace, difficult to choose the best peace. However, according to my current mood I liked Radiation Man most.... profound imagery, fresh metaphors, wonderful word pictures.

    A return to a classic hub page of yours which features some really awesome writing and yes I think of indelible moments in time - all of the time - and try to capture that 'snapshot' in my writing.

    I must say though your words here capture the right balance of intellect and emotion making it a full and richly satisfying reading experience.

    This is really beautiful poetry and the photos are great enhancers. "...we are space travelers with passports to the moon/ dreaming reality ." That is a great line. I am glad you shared these with us.

    Anna, the words are my own. The pictures were selected and downloaded from free stock photo websites. You can even sponsor or donate to the many talented photographers you'll discover.
