A Moment

Ernst Hanke
 Berlin, Auguste-Viktoria-Platz, 1862


I tread lightly
   
       steps falling into place

       unconsciously

a brief meeting

between earth and sky

in which,

     for a moment,

           I feel both.

  13. Yes, isn't it amazing how sky and earth meet but do not merge into one?
