A Sunset Of A Different Kind
There are times in one's life, sometimes fleeting,
where it seems as though a camera shutter snaps
and they are locked forever in memory.
There was a sunset once, of a different kind.
Lake Memphremagog, July,1986.
I sat on what seemed like the edge of the world,
or perhaps the centre of it,
on a stone made smooth by centuries,
and so leant to me by time.
There was no horizon,
the above met the below in one furious solid blaze.
The sun sat before me and we, like lovers in a bistro,
gazed into each other's eyes.
I cried. No one heard.
