That Lilac Moment - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

Here, under
the hot sun of love

he gazes
amazed

as if she could
evaporate

or be a mirage
or imaginary

but she's real
as real can be

another wave of love
catches and washes us up

against the lilac wall
brilliant in the sun

our minds starfish
in a rock poll

waiting for the sea
in all its immensity

to bring us to
an horizon

where blue meets blue
and a moment

stretches to
infinity.
