Encounter - Poem by David C Probst
Whirling through the streets,
Engulfing me with its cold breath—
Reflected on the glistening pavement.
A blink of light, gone in a second—
Perfuming damp dust from solid ground,
Intoxicating me with lost memories—
Of hissing wheels and splashing shoes
Rushing by in solitary unison—
Incognito, along these open spaces,
Clinging to the prospect of hearing
A soothing tune among such speechless crowds.
A word from you means more to me than books—
Perfuming warm lust from a solid heart,
Intoxicating me with secret memories—
Reflecting your smiling soul despite the rain.
A blink of an eye, lasting for days—
Whirling through me,
Engulfing and caressing me, sealed with
