Moment of Beauty

A moment of beauty passed me by Softly and with subtle Silence. Hoping to elude me. But my heart felt it, And I turned toward it, So my eye could see. It lighted near me, Feeling the need nearby. Beauty is lonely too, In a world of empty souls, Empty faces, deaf ears - Ethical structure to rue. A moment such as this is lost. To oceans of noise and fear. Grasping hands - greedy bodies leaping over the cool water, Into the flames of passion - Beauty knows. Patricia Langston Moran

Good flow and imagery, so many times we are too wraped up in the ugly of life that the simplest wonderful things slip by unnoticed, wonderful poem, good work. Judy Riley
