A Moment

written by: Elaine Marie



In a moment, there is a knowing
A feeling…
That cannot be explained
A thrilling… moment
Filled with a primal force that does not fade
Etched in time…
A union… that becomes greater
Deeper with new knowledge
The experience… is known… and
Yet unknown… constantly evolving…
Undulating… diminishing then burgeoning anew
A gentle wisp of memory like hair blown by the winds
Like the fierce passion of a long-awaited kiss
The feeling of that moment…
Warm skin to skin…
In embrace of…
A moment… that is more…
A scent… a smile… a tear suspended
Forever in memory of that moment…



I love the sentiment of this poem. It is the moments of our life that matter most and that we remember in the end.
