One Perfect Moment

One perfect moment
one tick of the clock
encased in amber
sealed forever
against time and tide
etched into the universe

One perfect moment
the stars and planets
in perfect alignment

One perfect moment
one second in a lifetime
years disapear
fireworks exlpoding at noon

One perfect moment
when everything came together
sunlight on the sea
moonlight on roses
the waltz of infinity
playing our song

One perfect moment
melting into you
senses on overload
sight and smell and touch
your arms around me
your lips on mine

One perfect moment
one tick of the clock
encased in amber
sealed forever
against time and tide
etched into the universe

    Words don't touch this place very easily. (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
