In an Elevator Minute


I met him in an elevator minute
That’s all it took for the ride.


He turned to me and said 

"This was fun 
let's do it to again, sometime”
"When" - I replied?
 “ Find a way to me, said he.
We stood silently together
Listening to music 
From a different generation
The rest of the elevator minute ride.
 Fin
 Friday Flash 55

  1. Un mini-roman d'amour, Joanny...
    Le fantasme de l'ascenseur, ou le suspense de croiser le regard d'une personne, sans se parler...
    Peut-être, qu'ensuite, vite, on va reprendre l'élévateur pour la retrouver?... Mais elle aura disparu...

  8. I'm laughing at Anthony's reply :)

    My elevator rides are never that enjoyable - I loved this 55, Joanny!

  9. Wow! I enjoy those brief moments. They always leave a trail in the heart and mind. The closed doors. The pregnant silence. The smell of people having been there. The shiny buttons which glow and the feeling of going up and down.
    Well, I could go on.

    Have a lovely weekend, dear Joanny.

    Joy always,
    Susan

  11. The poetry is beautiful alone and I can read so many meaning into it (I choose sensual but I'm on a sensual kick lately) But poem enhanced with the photos and I'm in a state of near bliss. Great 55.

  12. Witty banter for your elevator minute. I sensed that their thread was lost after the connection though.

  14. That rest of the ride minute could be so peaceful, or so uncomfortable.

  22. Absolutely intriguing and...I think it would be soooo much fun Joanny, to aks your followers if they ever used the "stop" button and what kind of music selected. Ready "Chapter parte 2"
    Love ya,
