blink

on an emerald hill
the quiet gathers
looking for a sound
blades of grass
arch their backs
casting shadows on the ground
cool currents slice the air
with honeysuckle sighs
moments last for eons
remembering your eyes
how i used to shine there
when morning kissed our brows
a glimpse of fleeting paradise
is all that time allows
