A Poet’s Capture

gin

A poet’s capture

Such good fortune bestowed upon me

Absorbing her story in perfect sway

Graciously spoken through her deepened eyes

Subtleties tapping on your soul with an almost contagious delight

So curious to me in the most poetic ways

To watch her spirit bounce with life and flutter in stride

I wished for just a moment I could have gently held it in my hands for her to see

The magic and light she naturally shared with me

The ripples of laughter that she couldn’t keep in

How it made her eyes dance and all around her seemingly spin

I wonder if she knows how brightly the stars shine by her side

Or that the moon and her glow in even pride

A true gift

A poet’s capture, my simple write

A fortunate evening

With a genuine light

  1. Alisa, I love the sincerity and purity of these lines:

    “I wished for just a moment I could have gently held it in my hands for her to see

    The magic and light she naturally shared with me”

    I am holding my hands open for you to see what you share for me.

    • Thank you, Keith:) Funny as the poem was actually built from just one moment I had shared with someone who had such a great, contagious laugh. I noted it at the time and thought wouldn’t it be great for people to be able to feel what they give to others in those moments. The lines you like were really the start point/thought of the whole poem:)
