During Lent

Light falling
through the eyelet
of a Venetian shade
lands on our bed.

How beautiful
this firefly
lying still, wings closed
but its electric pulse

sent to your lips
as you kiss
my throat and shoulder.

I am blessed
by a saint-pale lover
while somewhere
violets bloom
cloistered in snow.


Note --The painting is called, "Valley of The Roses" by artist, Jan Toorop.
