flitting things

So many words,
and thoughts
and phrases,
have come to me as of late,
but vanish,
like the bright reflection of the sun on water.
Here it is,
then gone before i can reach paper,
pen
or keyboard.
Still, i am so aware of all those things around me,
that bring these to the front.
Love
and darkness,
kindness
and honor,
bright sunny, warm days
and the rain falling,
giving life to the earth.
I am not quick enough to capture these things
and so i let them soar,
I do not try to cage these free thoughts,
and perhaps,
i am poorer for that.
