Perfect Moment

Words slip through my fingers
like sands of time
with nothing to hamper their
leaving.
Should I mourn their loss
once I’ve held the universe
if just one grain was mine.

Emotional pain hurts
can sometimes pulverize us
to curl into a ball
but, it also teaches
if true perception is gleamed
once we recognise its cause
as the harshest of
all teachers.

Touch me
don’t taunt

Yes,
the earth has music for

those who listen 
(Shakespeare)

I thrill at droplets on skin
….glistening.
Wash me clean of doubt
and all synthetic care.

With crisp and clear notes
sing loves music as
whispers to my waiting soul
and blow sweet, sweet kisses
which move with sensual play
in wind slow dancing over
lips come seeking the highs
of moonlight’s shimmering
seduction.

Hold still the quiet yearning
and thunder in my heart
as she finally surrenders
her milk en glow
with all God’s given grace
to the sparkles of gold in each
fresh morning sun which
trickles its simmering heat
over this desire.

Your secrets are safe with me
as I yield to music of the
cosmic vibration

and freeze myself into one
perfect moment of time.

  1. I love the way you’ve tied:
    ‘Should I mourn their loss
    once I’ve held the universe
    if just one grain was mine.’
    With the last 2 lines:
    ‘and freeze myself into one
    perfect moment of time.’
    Really lovely!

  2. I thrill at droplets on skin
    ….glistening.
    Wash me clean of doubt
    and all synthetic care.

    Really enjoyed that. Yes, nature is music… if we take time to listen.

  3. I understand you’be managed to blend three prompts! I can hardly manage one! There are some beautiful images here, and I love the quote.

  4. Gorgeous and so eloquently played out…
    I loved so many lines!
    “with all God’s given grace
    to the sparkles of gold in each
    fresh morning sun which
    trickles its simmering heat
    over this desire.”

    Wow, dazzling brilliance is this tune!
    Loved it!

  5. This is lovely – I especially liked:

    I thrill at droplets on skin
    ….glistening.
    Wash me clean of doubt
    and all synthetic care.

    – a wish worth wishing. k.

  6. Just as the sand slips, creating space, I love how this piece reads, weaving through space. It works itself into a ‘wash’ almost like a wave leading to the “gold in each fresh morning” and finally, a moment of contentment and stillness. I love that the end allows a place to breath. Wonderfully full!

  7. I fell in love with this poem during the first stanza: “Should I mourn their loss / once I’ve held the universe / if just one grain was mine.” I had never looked at it that way. It’s sort of like the mustard seed, but rather than an entrance ticket the grain of sand is experience. “Touch me / don’t taunt,” and the music does: it accepts and seduces and becomes the rain, the moon, and also the sun? You show us her holding the universe by letting it hold her, and indeed, she lets go of mourning. I believe every word as they “slip through my fingers.” Lovely.

  8. That was gorgeous, especially the thought of mourning the words which have slipped away, been used and moved on. I like the idea that such words will go to another mind, another creative heart who will use them differently than I.

  9. this is wonderful! beautiful! stunning! the first verse is simply exquisite!
    love this!

    thanks for joining us at Poetry Jam!

  10. I completely agree with Helen. Three different, and equally challenging prompts and you come up with this lovely poem! Kudos!!

  11. I love that this is about nature…it is such a sensuous telling especially this:

    “sweet kisses
    which move with sensual play
    in wind slow dancing over
    lips”

    I love the idea of a kiss slow dancing over lips!! Beautiful!

  12. So beautifully done. I might submit one photo for three different prompts, but I can’t imagine writing a poem for them as you have done here. I salute you.

  13. I know I’m holding a few grains of the universe in my hand … and I will not let go … thank you … love you always, Bren.

  14. sigh..how very nice bren…really like your imagery and language…and kisses on the wind….there is a nice rhythm to this…and a wonderful close….like…smiles…

  15. Ah, one perfect moment in time! Your entire poem led to this beautiful finale. Very sensitive, sensual poem that just seems to flow…….

  16. Perfection is always there perhaps maybe the trick is in both seeing it and re-defining what we believe it is..sun..gold..quiet whispers..quiet touches..truly the big things..Jae

  17. I absolutely love your opening stanza! It sets the tone for the whole poem. The quote you chose is so lovely too. Great job!

  18. That is a particularly beautiful quote and so full of imaginative truth. How wonderful to be inspired to listen to the song of the earth itself: to embrace that sense of unity.

    …and freeze myself into one
    perfect moment of time.

  19. Lighting all the senses as you went upon your verse and yeah music abounds all around, even a toot can sound like a flute hahaha

  20. Sigh. How absolutely beautiful this love poem is to read. I love “if only one grain was mine” and, especially, your closing lines. Hmmmm…..my detective’s nose is twitching…………hee hee!
