Brief Encountners

Poem By Corinne Reid

Tis true, we are but ships that pass in the night.
Ships that ultimately sail alone through time and space.
We encounter but briefly in the span of infinity.
We lay anchor for a time in tranquil lagoons
and then set sail weathering the storms.
Passing briefly, swaying lanterns in the night,
riding the tides of time.

We encounter briefly and pass on for nothing dies
we simply sail on to other dimensions.

Treasures

Zoo

Treasures multiplied in time.
Joyous bundles of life all wrapped in fur

Stolen Moments

Precious is forbidden bounty
not ours to keep but briefly savored.
Moments stolen.

Nocturnal Passage

Night beckons.
A compulsion to prowl nocturnally, deep in the forest
Silent footsteps stealing through the night as the world sleeps.
Creeping through the dense, dark and heavy canopy of great trees
