at the train station

by Uriel Tovar

we connected on a passing sorrow
you with a sad look
and i, a coke can
clamoring down a trash bin.

for a second
our lives
dark chocolate
and wild berries
thick and heavy freshness

but the moment
further than i'll every reach again.

I like they write Uriel, it fresh and elusive and fleeting as these moments can be all to often.

Anything "Chocolate and wild berries" is never meant to last. Way too yummy for that :)

Sigh... a lovely, superbly wistful, piece of art. You have captured a moment in the palm of your hand, and held it up for all to see. Definitely the highlight of my morning, thank-you for an excellent write! This goes straight to my favourites list!
