NaPoWriMo 2014 Day 27 ‘A Moment In Time’


Sunday, Day 27 0f this year’s NaPoWriMo…today a love poem originally drafted when I was a teenager, then re-drafted slightly…a little naïve, but hey, when you’re young!

A Moment In Time

Their eyes meet,
They seem to understand,

As they lie there
Savouring the precious moments,
The beauty of their naked bodies
Is emulated by the rays of moonlight
Filtering through the shutters,

Their hands touch tentatively;

After a prolonged silence
Their lips slowly meet;

All is quiet

As a new dawn breaks
A robin bursts into song,
A phone rings,
In the distance a siren sounds,
Milk bottles clatter on a doorstep
As an early morning round is completed,
A baby cries,

Slowly the everyday sounds of life filter through;

The transient moment is over

Originally written somewhere back in the early 1980s.
