A brief glance,
But it stops me.
It lasts for hours.
Just her glance,

But it stops me
In a joyous bubble.
Just her glance,
Her perfect brown eyes,

In a joyous bubble.
Her eyes meet mine,
Her perfect brown eyes.
She turns away.

The bubble shatters.
It lasted for hours.
It was only
A brief glance.

The author's comments:
This piece is a variation on a Malay-derived form called the pantoum. When I learned about pantoums, I immediately fell in love with the form and its artful repetition.
