Walking along (like you do)

you stabbed my consciousness,

lit a fire within me,

sudden lightning; striking dry moors

*

You reminded me of beauty,

long lost and forgotten

You reminded me of kindness

that lives in blue eyes, above the Arctic Circle

*

Strong arms, wrapped in thick, gray wool

Reminded me of the warmth of an embrace,

You reminded me of the fire a man can build, 

with just one look

*

You reminded me of Love;

of course I fled

Looking back;

glad to see you enter the train,

Forever lost, to me

*

I still send my thanks to you,

for now I am: Reminded

This poem was actually not inspired by this song, but in retrospect, I got to thinking that it had close connections to this song:

Perhaps I will speak more about the topic of this poem, in a later post, because there might be more to say on the subject…. we will see….
