Moment ....


I tried to
coax and cajole
that moment;
toiled to nurture
and nourish it;
begged it to stay,
soothed it
with poetry;
strove to sing it a lullaby,
lured it with love;
attempted to
make it blind
with passion,
held it in my arms,
caressed its forehead
with warmth and
kissed its eyelids ….

Yet the moment
like every other ones
went away,
without pausing
without looking back.

Captured the, uh, moment, perfectly. (Who says perfection can't happen in small, quiet - and sadly, often underappreciated - doses?).

Wow-worthy, thoughtful work.

You have captured that longing and feeling so beautifully in this one shot... really nice!
