LIGHT

 

The touch of lips

The touch of foreheads

Resting

Resting Together

 

A pleasing heaviness

Draped over their shoulders

Like a favorite old coat

Light

 

Respectfully

Respectfully revealing

Illuminating

The love

 

Shining from them both

Unfettered

Not wanting

Not waiting

 

Five plus five fingers

Tap, touch then hold

Eyes closed

As wave after wave of awareness

 

From the ageless and timeless gentle blue and green sea

Washes over their faces

Then continue on

Never landing anywhere

 

Stunned to eternal silence

By the encounter

By the knowledge

Nothing to say

 

Nothing to do

A slow embrace

A slow unfolding

A slow and breathtaking blossoming… standing completely alone

 

In the great and completely empty…gentle silence
