Untimely Confidence

Wearing a baseball cap I strolled
into town beneath a summer's sky.
She looked this way - that brunette,
now I'm wearing a smile as well.
The leaves of the oak were faded green
while near the roots tiny flowers bloomed.
In her hand was one such flower.
Yellow? Red? I couldn't tell you.
The river underneath the bridge
was rushing fast over pebbles,
people came this way and that.
Two water droplets - we never met again.

What I love about writing poetry is catching those moments and memories, and reflecting back on it, being able to reconstruct it into words that hold meaning. We can describe our experiences so colorfully and thoughtfully, just as you have here. Always, Laura

Life, it's so fleeting. In a blink of an eye everything can change. (Or in this case, two water droplets ;) ) This is a bittersweet poem. You enjoy moments while you can before its gone. (And No. I do not support YOLO. -__- hahaha)

That sure is a striking point in life that you will remember, combined with many others that occur from time to time. In a few more years you will remember...get flashbacks...and wonder what and if!! I like the presentation and the conclusion. // paul
