The Kiss Drops This Evening!

Announcing the drop of my 9th watercolour #HicEtNunc 8/3 at 2pm PST. 
The Kiss

I paint seascapes that evoke human emotions. Just as in this Poem by Rabindranath Tagore [1861-1941] who is considered the greatest writer in modern Indian literature. The kiss in the clouds is used as a metaphor for the search for love. After a love lost a new love is found, deeper for the storms the heart has been through in the past. This is a complicated love after decades of a life fully lived.

"The Kiss" ~ by Rabindranath Tagore

Lips' language to lips' ears.
Two drinking each other's heart, it seems.
Two roving loves who have left home,
pilgrims to the confluence of lips.
Two waves rise by the law of love
to break and die on two sets of lips.
Two wild desires craving each other
meet at last at the body's limits.
Love's writing a song in dainty letters,
layers of kiss-calligraphy on lips.
Plucking flowers from two sets of lips
perhaps to thread them into a chain later.
This sweet union of lips
is the red marriage-bed of a pair of smiles.
