Moment In Time

Moment In Time

Stood  gazing at the  irredescent, moonglade 
shimmering relentlessly over the crystal waves,
 now stilled by the wind.
Her mind rushed to the horizon
seemingly still, yet ever receeding.
Under the same moonlight 
illuminating the beauty before her,
she wished her love could share
with her forever
this moment in time

So many moments in time that held
him suspended.
Within her memory heart.
Echoes of precious days spent enwrapped
within each other.
Mindlessly devouring that sacred commodity
that for them soon
would no longer exist.
That familiar face, now hazy,
but still held within
this special, unique and
never to be recaptured
moment in time.

Really beautiful poem, full of melancholy. 
I have to ask though Lady Lodigiana, are you an avid Countdown fan? Moonglade came up as the tea time teaser and ever since I have been thinking about the word. 
Your friend Nigel

Oh Tony  I wish Countdown as exciting as you might be imagining ..but it is an afternoon tv programe which basically is creating words from 9 letters randomly  selected, with also a numerical game and  anagram solving...the one Nigel and I were talking about was on yesterday and one of the words made up from the  9 letters was ‘Moonglade’ and clearly both Nigel and I had the same thought  that it was a  beautiful word to use in poetry, so hence my latest offering...I will look forward to Nigel's.So my dear friend I  am guessing Countdown is pretty tame for your wild lifestyle but we old cranks look forward to watching it whilst knitting!,, Thank you as always Tony for reading and commenting ..big hugs xxxx

Hi Lodigiana...I love how you encapsulated a beautiful memory that serves as a painful place in current time, but still holds such a lovely wistful moment suspended to replay....It is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all....as the adage says....and love never dies when it has memories like you portray to keep it there...xo  Great work. Love n Hugs

Hi Cherie, oh you are so right...how sad life would be if we never had the chance to experience the joy of love..even if the aftermath can sometimes be sad..but in a way that makes it all the sweeter ,,Thank you so much my lovely girl always so happy to hear from you. Lodigiana xxxx
