Encounter - Poem by David C Probst

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