These Mementos

one can linger
for a lifetime

transfixed
in a moment winsome

akin to the impossible prelude
of mountains mending karma

on this plate
precariously poised
are we

with passions urgent

witless passers-by

together, melding with the sun

somewhere
in this coiled caprice

there burns a conscious conflagration

do we let our hearts surrender?

are we not allowed to live?

i submit this writ of pause

forever may we summon forth

all the worlds
our loss would suffer

vivid by the moon’s requite

locked within the winds of fortune

these mementos
deemed foregone

    That is simply stunning. Thank you for reading and following my blog. I read this and thought about the moments that we trap ourselves in and they can cryonically halt our progression I think. So often when I write a poem, I freeze that winsome moment there and then I can move on to another.
    Glad you found me
