A Mere Second

Burst!… of bright lime.

drip drip, drop drop.

The vivid ray lines.

trip trip, trop trop

The air now awoken from its wallowing state,

As the mildew tears of the moment,

Soon evaporate into the scarlet eye

That lies among the azure crescent sky

Woosh… whoosh…

Like being drawn from a murky swamp

Into the mild fresh air,

You feel… somewhat revitalized.

You chuckle a tad, as only a moment passed.


tock… tock…

Your blissful trance was still no more than a second.

Ha ha… and you thought it was a lifetime.
