Page from the Past

Kiosk, 1997, Volume 59
Eric Knell


Two distant souls
weary from the dance
take their seats
to watch dreams brush by
as a sea of coupled hearts
teeming with passion
swells between them
both longing,
            both hoping,
            both praying
            for that one moment
            when the sea will divide
            and unite their lonely eyes
            and unite their lonely eyes
            as they take the floor
            to embrace one another       
            granting His wish.
