Transient as 
a wet tyre track 
on sunwarmed tarmac. 
Fleeting as 
the first snow of winter. 
Evanescent as 
electricity in a battery. 
Transitory as 
the twin towers. 
Ephemeral as 
early morning dew. 
Short lived as 
a shooting star. 
Cursory as 
a nod from a stranger. 

Invaluable as 
a Picasso painting. 
Dear as 
a diamond anniversary. 
Inestimable as 
insects on earth. 
Precious as 
your new born baby. 

We have only one 
and it melts in the sun.

  1. Brilliant musings on the multi-faceted cuts of life’s jewel. It’s that type of poem that needs to be re-examined and discussed over coffee. Life as a cafe stocked with other like minds. You’d be there, for sure. Going to the chap book.
