... The Blink of an Eye...

by Peter Hunter

the blink of an eye


a flash brief blinding light that startles the western sky

a devils blink perhaps

or the contemptuous spit from some god unknown


perhaps an arcane wink

signalling the prelude to the end

but wait pause and think


do not panicbut resolutely

ponder wonder and excite

for death that ultimate adventure
