Epiphany


As the tear of Time
Trickled down the
Face of Life
I saw a Moment
Roll down its cheek.

A moment made of
Millions of minute
Myriad spells.
A moment tinted with
Colourful colors.

A moment that lay
Bare and throbbed
Wild and chained
Panted and gasped
Sobbed and gurgled.

A moment that was
Dark and luminous
Parched and quenched
Tender and strong
Pain and joy.

A moment
Circled with a halo
Gathered me in its radiance
To feel eternity.
A moment
That infused awe
And a pleasurable dread
A moment of ecstasy in pain
A moment of utter worship
A moment that never slept
A moment that lay awake.
A moment called Love

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
