Lingering on the Palette

the nuance of a moment
is twofold
first
is the arrival
an entity
out of time
perhaps
in spite of Fate
beyond his remit
but only perhaps
second
the aftermath
a shadow of its
imprint
like the taste of good wine
lingering on the palette
of indefinite time
still intriguing
long after the event
