Poetry Corner: Flagstaff

Most of the time when I write these, the photograph comes first and acts as inspiration. This was a lucky shot from just outside a hotel room.

Fleeting –deer
momentary wonder, this
instant breaking through
clouds of mind and muddle,
the snap of a twig, a glimpse of beauty –
wake up and see it,
holding your breath
In another moment it will be gone
