you flash past me
before I could even blink
Still on you I focus
But you flashily dash away
Making me stare
at your flashes
As I wonder
why you’d choose to be flashing
When you can be permanent
And let your flashy flashlight

My poem’s here if you care to visit and read:
Love the play on words. The repetition of flash in various forms. Fun!
ah – there are people, they just can’t be permanent – know some of them as well – they have to be enjoyed when they flash by and can’t be made to stay…
Very nice!!! It flashed in my mind some thoughts, as I wondered why…
Loved the part where you ask why it couldn’t be permanent! It was awesome!!!

My friend, I’m glad to be here, and reading again. This piece is very enjoyable…I agree, don’t just flash in and out, off an on,….Shine!
i guess its human nature- every one acts as per his/her own.
Definitely a flashy poem.
He sounds like one fresh flasher. Light and full of sparkling wit. I LOVE your eye catcher photos – the colors, textures… superb photography!!

Maybe she’s having hot flashes.
Too much rushing around in the world 🙂
Great poem, Em. I think you ask a question through your lines that perhaps no man can answer.IDK lol The analogy and double meaning is brilliant. Cheers!
I agree with Brian, a fun read…and why not shine??? Great One Shot
