Villanelle

The moment was fragile

Like a floating bubble or decades old paper.

I was always searching for the magical

It’s been awhile

I was waiting, seeking something deeper

The moment was fragile

 

Now I stand before you, hoping to baffle

And there is nothing that could hamper.

I was always searching for the magical

 

The intensity is gradual

Like ocean waves or air that’s crisper

The moment was fragile

 

Up here, yes, I am vulnerable

But up here, I am the gatekeeper

I was always searching for the magical


I open my mouth, and I dazzle

I am the artist-creating the moment, I am a carver

The moment was fragile

I was always searching for the magical
