Love’s last look

detail 2

                Detail 2, John Lyons (oil on canvas)

Whichever way
you look at it
it’s words
there’s no escape

the absence of speech
but not necessarily
of thought

Viewed from this angle
what does this canvas
convey ?
Shapes and colours

are the same
but a shift in orientation
is a shift in perception
just as love

observed from a distance
is simply not the same
her face her eyes
caught in a new light

a composition of the mind
a flurry of questions
where is this all going
and where will it end ?

John Lyons
