In This Moment, Tonight

 

In tune with this familiar vibe, let’s wonder how it might be
Across the room our eyes will meet, a set of four
In a place setting reserved for two, captivated
Our everyday routines and thoughts will speak
Through the eyes, uninhibited, grooving in the same skin

Once upon a raging fire we’ll celebrate
The memory of that zing thing, we'll watch as it
Circles slowly into softer flames, flickering
Well-suited as old comfortable shoes
And continue enveloped in life's mystical sound

More sensible, aware of the need to be inward
Or outward at different times, we'll find pleasure
In being tired wild things, slowing down in our swings
If it breaks and cracks we’ll pledge not to notice

So, just for the sake of thinking that it might not last
Before it’s even begun, let’s just wish upon hope
Until we meet, and vow to be good to each other
In this moment, tonight

    I really love"tired wild things slowing down in our swings" It captuers my feelings of being in my sixties and still thinking I am in my twenties or thirties. And so it goes. Be happy my friend Karen ! Your poem has touched me and made me smile.;Michael

    This poem was a "zing thing". The thoughts that cross through young lovers minds. Hoping to become old lovers finds. Memories not lost but buried in stone. Islands to visit when left all alone. Hopes for tomorrow that fade into past. A friendship forever that always will last. I need to write that down. I enjoyed this very much. Thanks for making me think. Rockman :-)

    I enjoyed even more the second time, it makes me think of aging lovers and how physically we undergo changes and offer each other grace and just see the beauty in each others eyes.

    I like the "realism" here, a recognition of the changing nature of intimate relationships. .. Jack
