Afloat (Prompt: Toulouse-Lautrec’s “In Bed The Kiss”).



Eyes closed
heart open,

future laid
before them.

This moment
erases years
of obligation,
forced sentiment
spent elsewhere.

Afloat in
that mysterious
afterglow, before
losing consciousness

and gaining
direction for
this newly
coupled life.

  1. A very sweet take on the painting! I really like those last two stanzas, especially the idea of "losing consciousness and gaining direction."
