By the Bay: A Poem Of Forgotten Love In San Francisco Bay By Moondustwriter


By The Bay: A Poem of Forgotten Love 
In San Francisco Bay by Moondustwriter

They were magnetized
by a timeless embrace
for fractions of a moment
*
his eyes  just as entrancing
hers glistened  like diamonds
energy surged thru the pair
*
a single silhouette
caught by the light
reflected on the bay
*
for that brief moment
transferred back
to a distant time and place
*
young love was all
that entered their minds
as they danced beneath the stars
*
the next instant they awakened
to wisps of fog
intertwined in their smiles

Well--I missed Wednesday--in more ways than one!--but here today, and that is what makes it OK..being IN the spot where my two feet are under me, all the way to the ground...

Most enjoyable beginning of this Thursday, thanks to you, Moon Dust!

How touching! Absolutely breathtaking imagery of a wonderful moment at an equally wonderful place. There is a dream-like quality to this poem of yours, that lends such beauty to this image of young love...

And you've successfully sparked memories in me of the great San Fran. Beautiful place, it is...

A beautiful poem, you capture the wonder of a moment. I love the powerful ending 'to wisps of fog
intertwined in their smiles', it contains so much.

Leslie, two things that strike me about this poem are the setting and the element of time, especially the latter because the meaning seems both momentary as well as timeless.
cheers :)

Awww... that was so beautifully romantic!
And like Adam says, momentary and timeless! That one moment seemingly making time stop, and yet when past, it seems so short :)
This was a dear and lovely piece... very soothing to the heart and calming to the mind.. Loved it!
