Flickering Gleam

In his eye I see a gleam
A bright shining beam
It appears as a flare
flash from here to there

Optic oscillation
Vision quivering
A glimmer of a ray
Sparkling scintillation

At first a subtle twinkle
Until it flickers and goes out

It’s Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub today, where we’re celebrating the 6th anniversary of the pub. Come on over and check out some other 44-word poems that include some form of the word flicker. I found this one quite fun. I looked up flicker in the online Thesaurus, and then used the words I found there.
