A Quiet Moment Passing

The
Blue skies and
Warm colors belie
The first hint of autumn days.
Pause.

Stop.
Acquire
A quiet moment.
Life encourages this soft
Path.

Time
Will again
Invoke its magic.
Next dash of eternity –
Poof!

Smile.
Wallow in
A chance to marvel
The ebb and flow of breeze; be
Touched.

Give
This its due
What will be – will be
Change is the only constant,
Breathe.

Today’s form is a Crown Oddquain

Tonight Linda tends bar at dVerse where on this day 58 years ago The Rolling Stones released “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” and tonight happens to be Open Link Night.

  1. The Crown Oddquain is new to me and I really must try it. I love the delicate sounds of your poem, the use of plosives and long vowels, which give it breath. Autumn is my favourite season and I especially enjoy the early autumn days.
