Green Flash at Sunset

For a minute we were “soul” mates...
at least in my mind
You knew things about me without me ever speaking.
I gave you my heart--
and part of me no one else would ever have.
You gave me a sense of self, accepted me,
and <dare I say> perhaps even loved me --
... for a minute

You were my ‘green flash’ at sunset 
bright…rare…there
then gone as quickly
leaving me holding
your memory

  1. Wow, I've just experienced such a moment in my life. I'm 45 and never thought I'd find another green flash moment in my life. And then I happened on your poem. Very cool. Ellie in Northern MI
