split second view

panorama

as when the clouds roll back,
revealing for an instant
a mountain’s snow-capped splendor
and majestic charm
in momentary clarity

’til a mere twist and tilt of the earth
by mist and meteorological certainty
by the whim of a delicate wind
it is shrouded again

dissipates

yet burned
upon memory
and longing

these days
the glint of the horizon
gleams sharper, purer
and catches the pink-tipped sunrise
with ease
and casual resolve

an imperceptible smile
plays upon its lips

anticipation.
