Briefly

Briefly,

Intriguingly.

A quick glimpse

and it disappears

around another sharp turn

in the twisting road.

 

Proud.  Old.

Ample space

under heavy tiled roofs.

 

Built for many lifetimes.

For many lives to pass thru.

To build more.

To nurture the growth

in fields and vineyards

and olive groves

spilling down

the terraced hillsides.

But briefly.

 

Briefly.

A glimpse in time

of a scene.

Of but a glimpse

of a fleeting moment

in time.

 

Around another curve

in the twisting road

of life.

 

Briefly glimpsed.

Briefly known.

Briefly felt.

Briefly.
