Fleeting moment ( In Free Verse Revolution)

It was a moment like no other
the setting sun sat pensively in my lap
as the rising moon listlessly plucked stars from my hair
I gathered them all in my blistered hands.

Sipping on a sea froth infused cocktail of longing
with sea waves humming a dirge in my ears
and my dreams reflected in the dark shroud of the sky
I let go of the galaxies
that I held tightly in my palms!

They slipped like the grains of sand to scatter
stranded sea-shells-like in the wind
I curled up like a withered leaf
to give up the semblance of being alive
adrift I float
pretending to be living,
but dead.

Thanks, Kristiana.

  1. There is a flow…..like wishes of a rainy night…it whispers the tale of those martyred moments…in droplets of emotions….in silence of listening to itself…..in accepting the unforseen and sacrificing the inevitable…there is a smell of goodness in floating through….drifted to an unknown shore where delight and sorrow lie as fading footprints of destiny….where seashells imagine the sketch of a waveless sea curled like a withered leaf…where autumn has done its last colours….
    The moments slowly liberate into the sky…no more mine now….yet slip into the sleeves of time…..eternally trapped….seemingly alive, yet dead for good….
    Intense pain…virgin poetic sense…
    Take care

    1. Thanks a lot, Andrew. The rest of the poem is on another site. Maybe when you have time, you can read the entire poem. Or maybe I will remedy it by posting it in its entirety here.
      Always touched by your visits and kind words.
