a moment preserved

aMomentpreserved

a flash

a moment preserved

droplets of water frozen

to her skin

transparent in sunlight

glinting a perpetual gold

a flash

a moment preserved

stars engraved

into a dark sky

paralyzed rain

a flash

a moment preserved

the same girl

standing upside down

skin a solid immutable silver

a flash

a moment preserved

a scarlet halo rippling

forever

her face turned to

stare into another world

  1. I like where you say the girl was “standing upside down.” sometimes I feel like there are moments in my life that were preserved like this. there are certain moments that are blazed into our memories for, sometimes, reasons unknown. Really liked the imagery in this poem and the way it played upon my nostalgia/memories. Finally, liked the picture you chose as well.
