That Longest Moment

by Harry

Posted for Vivien.

I do not know

If the second prolongs

Or if time abruptly


That longest

When our eyes suddenly meet

Anticipation and surprise entangle

In that subtle smile

That longest discourse in quietness

Is enough to comprehend the unspoken

Like the conversation of my heart

To the sun, the moon and the stars

On a hopeful night

As it vividly paints in my memory

To capture my delight

To liberate my fright

When two souls nod to fall

In that fastest moment to fantasy

And the slowest second to reality.
