Fingers begin
the unfurl of taut waking hours
his hand a lined plateau of life’s revealing
Slipping behind her before one moment away breath
her ringlets of sighs tiptoe
quietly to his open palm
Love planted to live inside
a second beyond his touch
he responds in smiles to thoughts he is yet to know

The waking precipice sheers away the attentive night
she is his one moment breath away dream
Yawning in stretch
strands of her ghost hair loosen his heart
confusing her lilac with morning dew he welcomes the day

He builds a house
then another with the restlessness in him
mortar and brick wearing her lipstick of belonging
A moment of luck saw her
fate saw a moment of serendipity
a world with each other begins from a footstep of believing
The moment of longing
hidden seconds blooms hours in the one to two

Long years tend time’s yoking
youth to aging limbs
Rainy mist steams a write
past moments on their house of many windows
Sunshine beams in her smile
warming his heart in love’s sway
Eyelids fall to sleep the sleep of his final dreaming
He farewells she
She who is the complete moment of his love
steals his lips in a kiss
A moment of love breathing into the last breath of his days

Artist's Description

Life …..Is it made up of moments?
We are living in a moment this very second….

Do you have a moment that waits for you?

I would like to be kissed fully as my last moment finds me
