Reflections

“A Perfect Moment”…

The scent of jasmine snags my attention;

incense burning nearby.

Soft fur drapes across the bare skin of my thigh

Purring…

At the window, a flash of crimson

as a cardinal wings silently by.

A brilliant contrast to the slate gray sky

Tantalizing…

Outside the flash of fireflies begins

a timeless dance of romance.

A single cricket sings as dusk creeps in

Mesmerizing…

Soon the stars will rise, the moon will shine

Another time arrives.

The night brings with it its own unknowns

Mystifying…

But for now, the magical between time,

anything can happen.

Revelations, epiphanies and transitions

Magnifying…

I am swamped by emotion so strong

it takes my breath away.

Painful and joyous, all at once

Sanctifying…

This single moment, this single heartbeat

this single breath I take.

In this particular Now, I know, All is well

Gratifying…

Kindness pays, no matter what they say

It creates its own reward.

The perfection of this moment speaks to me

Revealing…

Love is mine.
