The delight in human being

Reproduction, John Lyons (oil on canvas)*

The delight in human being

To live in love’s timeless space
           that thrives
in the sweet innocence of the day
           that feasts on
the blessed miracle of air
           that delights
in the touching tasting hearing saying
           of human flesh
that carries its impenitent uprooted soul
           with humble pride
through the long descending hours
           until with breathful thrusts
it may penetrate the undying ecstasies
           of the night

John Lyons

*The 40 cm x 40 cm canvas is my largest to date
