At The Concert 2014

At The Concert


A pearl of the heart ran down her cheek.

She daren’t speak;

Still and mesmerized, she listened –

Only listened.

While a cheekbone glistened,

She, absorbed in song and sound

Did not, could not look round

To see if others’ hearts

Were as transparent.

Cocooned in music’s magic,

Emerged a butterfly

When whole was over;

Taking flight with memory

Its only Now.

The sole accessible,

One get-at-able Now

For Always – hers.*


*To Amelia
