In Our Moment


In our moment I glimpsed in your eyes
a wind swept meadow in shades of green.
Then color exploded filling the skies
as butterflies' flight painted the scene.

In our moment I inhaled the sweet scent
of the blossoming red rose in bloom.
Then fragrant erupted with fresh accent
as the breeze caught your sweet perfume.

In our moment I heard the soft melody
of a ballad sung to love's sweet tempo.
The chorus was played by a symphony
as our hearts beat a perfect crescendo.

In our moment I tasted life's delicate spice
sprinkled over lust with your gentle hand.
Then flavor burst forth with a new entice
as together we shared love's dish so grand

In our moment I felt the world's revolution
spinning both my heart and soul around.
Then on its axis I found a soft resolution
stopping my heart in a new season found

In our moment I sensed the grandest array
of life's most wondrous experiences galore.
Then with its steady momentum at play
time ticked and the moment was no more

Free Verse of Same Poem

In our Moment

I got a glimpse in your eyes
of butterflies in flight
over fields of green

I took in the sweet fragrance
of the blossoming rose
in the morning's sun

I heard a ballad softly sung
of a melody whispered
to love's sweet tempo

I tasted life's delicate spice
sprinkled by your gentle touch
as we shared love's dish

I felt the world's revolution
spinning my heart around
forever changing me

In sensory I experienced
life's most grandest theme
then time ticked it away
