Momentary

MOMENTARY

Just before dawn the roses appear
white, ghosts of the blooms I know
them to be, then blush pink as day
glows.

I catch such moments, fresh and
personal, like fish you catch on
your own hook when you are nine,
to admire the colours glistening
on the line.

    I especially liked the fish reference.

    Brunette! I think she is a national treasure. Her name is Zara.

      It’s been too quiet. We may need another brunette. This one is from Girls und Panzer singing a song composed after the fall of the Soviet Union for a computer game.

        I have a FB friend who loves this series. It seems to unite two of his likes.

        I haven’t watched the actual series or movies, but I love the music videos. I am developing a fondness for the big eyed girls.
