Light and shadow dance through the window,
ready to make the most of a precious moment.
A tango here… a rumba there….
their love is harsh and quiet,
volatile and timely,
angst-ridden and sweet with magic.
Multi-flavored pigments fill the room,
gliding up and down and across each wall to the
harmonies between them.
Light and shadow have to fade away soon,
waiting for one more precious moment,
always anticipating a time to love.
If only the world understood…
if only someone could make sense and accept
the sad and hypnotizing affair.
