I looked up

I looked up…
… and saw a huge cloud spread across the centre of the sky and within the white I saw a delicate feminine face looking down at me. On the right side of her face, a larger masculine face emerged, focused with intent. I watched masks emerge and than fade all around these two faces. Soon the cloud dispersed and the faces disappeared as they morphed into one. Behind the cloud I saw a moon appear as a white outline in the pre dusk sky. The moon was shaped like smiling lips that kissed my mind into peace. A flock of seven white birds in arrow formation darted across the sky. I breathed heavy and slumped down deep into the hot mineral spring. I closed my eyes and dreamed of lips and felt them like silk across my cheek, wet and responsive.

Sigh.
Heartbeat.
I let go of all that was irrelevant in that moment.
Happy.
Free.
At last.

The day was perfect.
