In a Moment of Poetry


In a Moment of Poetry


And now, on reflection

it seems,

I am not at all certain ..

I should have

ever believed, what my

eyes then did

tell me to believe, in that

moment when

I first caught sight of her ..

At the time tho’

I felt sure, she could walk

upon water ..

So perfect was she, as she

stood there

by the shore in her sandals

and her shawl ..

It was truly, a moment of

purest poetry

indeed, of enlightenment ..

    Good write N. KP will stop at nothing - says she can walk on water. Walk on a lake of botox, more like! lol.
    But don't ya hate those who always say 'at this moment of time'? Erm, 'basically' they are annoying.
    They've got me at it now - repeating 'basically' all the time!

      I'm surprised you haven't ditched KP .. or she you, by now Mr. O .. I wonder if she would ditch ya for a fox by any chance .. there must be plenty of chicks yet to be fledged who have a thing about ferrets n other furry things .. in fact, I met one in clinic the other day and put a good word in for you sir .. so please keep your eye on the post for correspondence signed Anne Noying 🐭💙🐧👍

      (surrealist equity , in what we choose
      to believe in
      yet, Time unfurled to that fingertip of realised
      we adhere to fate's decree, as we cherish
      that intuitive
      poetic moment, which went-on to grace
      our life
      so wondrously, decadent...)

        my eyes are still leaking from having just read your relatively recent M's Day post .. but can't leave this page without my most meaningful thank being underlined 🙂

        Your poetic moments are always so readable - I loved absorbing this bit reflective "what if ".............x

        • Neville

          although one can of course beat an egg etc etc .. tis nigh on impossible to beat them what if's, isn't it Fay .. x💜

          Life does come across as a series of poetic moments and some of which are so exhilarating we wish them not to end!

          • Neville

            spot on sir ... I am seriously inclined to think that\'s why I feel so compelled to jot things down as I meander along .. N 🙂

            The perfect moment, how many do we have over a lifetime? Bundle them up, and keep them safe for they do inspire. A lovely write dear friend.

            • Neville

              Many of my most sincerest thanks Bella 🌹

            • Doggerel Dave

              Just a moment? No aftermath?
              I have a moment like that - sans shore... sans sandals... sans shawl... sans - sorry It's private.
              An enjoyable thought you provoked, Neville - worth the read.

              • Neville

                Thank you kindly Dave .. every now & again tho' I wonder if I may have inherited part of Mr. O's genetic profile sans I wonder if I make no sans at all 🐧

                Sounds like someone I know N. Wonderful write.

                • Neville

                  I had a feeling in my water you might say that .. well the first bit anyway .. the second bite made my heart glow .. thanks AP

                  At first, I thought this would turn out to be an Enlightenment era painting of a woman by the sea, but no, it is your vision, your way of finding beauty in the simpler forms of life. Thank you for posting this and lifting my spirits, - Phil A.

                  • Neville

                    If I even managed a minute fraction of that, then I am indeed a very happy man Phil .. thank you & truly .. Neville
