FLEETING ~ passing swiftly; vanishing quickly; transient

For although memories, of a season, for example,
Melt into a single snapshot, one cannot guard, treasure
That stalled moment. It too is flowing, fleeting;
It is a picture of flowing, scenery, though living, mortal,
Over which an abstract action is laid out in blunt,
Harsh strokes.

~John Ashbery, poet *

CIMG0004*If you missed my post the other day about Ronnie’s sestina, it’s still there.  And included is a sestina by the very same poet, John Ashbery.  It seems I’m hip-deep in Baader-Meinhof yet again, the phenomenon I wrote about here.
