Every moment

IMG_3943

It defies explanation or definition

yet persists

days when it is there, quietly

sitting in the corner

waiting to speak,

other times

words filling me

with a rush –

images vivid in tone and texture

what is it that calls my pen to action

my being to yearning –

it is a restless, palpable electricity

all shivering limbs

and hushed desires

a longing that speaks without words

we watch each other

as if we are taking

a long drink of ice-cold water

on a scorching day

it’s how it feels

when you are about to taste something

for the first time

that wondrous expectancy

a feeling so delicious

you can’t wait for it to start

yet want to draw it out

every moment imbued

with import

and every confidence

that your world

is about to be

rocked
