A Kiss

When the moment occurs, it is not a moment,

It is eternity within the moment.

It is not lips touching.

It is the mating of souls.

I know not where I am nor why.

We are together… somewhere…

Mutually we want not

For we are fulfilled.


We command time and space,

Together, entwining…

Floating free…

Buoyed on Elysian* wings…



I am wanted.

I am loved.

We return leisurely to – now.

My footing is gently found.

As one – we have breathed life’s fire.
