moment

The flower waits for rain upon its petals,

How much we desire to speak with each other

 

The lightning begins to stir in the distance,

Wanting nothing more than to hear you speaking

 

After the lightning comes a roar of thunder,

There are no words for there is no speech

 

Only momentary glances in silence,

Like the eternity of a single tear, feeling wanted

 

Wind rushing against the grass, the storm's intensity now peaking

Droplets of rain upon the roses in your eyes, pure and intense

 

The rivers and streams now full with the weight of what has fallen

I come back to myself and my confidence, always seeming to lack

 

We look away never to meet again,

For that moment we longed
