Crystal Reflections

crystal-flame

.

Many of the sights

we see

along the road taken

through life

as vivid as they are

when we are there

they fade

once we’ve moved on

unless

they light a flame upon the inner sands

burning with desire

melting

merging

creating a crystal clear

moment

which lasts

however far

we roam

it

travels with us

“I’m running out of things to say. My gas is running on empty.
I’ve stopped stealing pages out of poetry books, but last week I pocketed a thesaurus
and looked for synonyms for you but could only find rain and more rain
and a thunderstorm that sounded like glass, like crystal, like an orchestra.”
― Shinji Moon
