Short-Lived

ephemera

short-lived in reality
momentary ephemera
which please being too
delicate to exist holistically
unique dreams woven in fragile
flourishes to linger

mayflies in a shadowed
stream of consciousness
an eclectic evening’s rise
brightly lit fireflies in cavernous dark
tracing out harmonious lines
fuelling desire

I need these visions
of frailty, of temporality
like vestiges of memory
empowers me to write
crafted in words
recalling them clear
