Fatal attraction

Fatal attraction

Light travels at such a speed
           to us it seems static
and through the waters
           a carp swims swiftly
but we catch the glimmer
           of its scales
or the trout moving
           through a stream
that summer in Kilkenny
           ripples of sunlight
drifting across
           the river surface

All things move
           and our emotions too
movements of the heart
           one towards another
and we call that
           love
