Poetry

You

I heard your voice today

In the stillness of the day

Through traffic and crowds

I smelled your perfume

I saw your hair

.

The loudness dimmed

The light faded

And in the red shirt

Your skirt twirled around

You stopped

.

When I took a step

The image faded

And the day began again

Traffic flowed and light brightened

You disappeared around the bend

.

For a moment, I heard you

I saw you and smelled you

And in the moment I was thankful

That you visited me

A moment caught in a memory
