Poetic Musings

But for a moment

Breathless, burning,
But for a moment
Life has beauty.

Burning, intensity,
But for a second
The wind is still.

Intensity, passion,
But for a quiver
Fear has meaning.

Passion, breathless,
But for the rapture
You wait

to exhale.


A selection of poetry to experience and explore.
