A Ghosting of Love

She puts on her pretty summer dress
and takes one last look into the mirror.

After months of quiet evenings in this silent place
only broken, now and then,
by radio waves, passing traffic and the playful chatter of children.
She closes the door behind her
and takes s a deep breath as though to consume the very essence of summer night.

The warm breeze of evening flows gently through every gap
and seeps into this light cotton cloth forming its cloak around the skin
which now tingles with anticipation of what soon will be
in a most intimate gathering.

At the table for two, she takes here place
and gracefully sets her pose
with all senses of tension and nerve kept secretly out of sight.
And as the senses are filled with the taste of life,
she occcasionally glances across the table
for that precious glimpse.

Just a glimpse of her lover, here soulmate, her friend,
who appears once again in front of her eyes.
And when this creation is complete in the opposing empty seat,
the senses will will be fulfilled and the memories will be sweet.

This is the place
where the soul of her lover appears.
The body has gone
but the welling years of memory
allows this vision to linger on.

The meal is over
and the glass on the table
has been empty for some time,
yet she too will linger
a little longer
and gently smile.

And holding this gaze
she will steadily rise
like walking on air
make for home again
touched by love,
enveloped by its gentle surprise.

And with this journey,
all is complete
a re-creation of love
where once more
in this house
two souls will reside
in love
side by side.

Artist's Description

Sat alone one night in my regular favourite Pizzaria in Milan and saw this evolve. This was the only occassion I felt I ever witnessed someone enveloped in an after life experience. I tried to ignore it. It was so private and personal.
