Green Flash
by Plynn Gutman

Amid ocean and sky
a wanderer stops

where sun sinks
into quiet azure –

flash of green

– in unblinking eyes
a vision appears

only by a wish
made real in spaces

between beats
of her heart,

the silence
between breaths.

Between breaths
the silence

of her heart
between beats

made real in spaces
only by a wish,

a vision appears
in unblinking eyes –

flash of green

– into quiet azure
where sun sinks

a wanderer stops
amid ocean and sky.
