Uplifting love

          Flight, John Lyons (acrylic on paper)

This flight of colour

       across the blank page
soaring upwards
       and onwards

Life that leaves
       but a stain
on the world
       the passage of hours
the consummation
       of a brief love

art that struggles
       to retain each
precious feeling
       in the memory
attaching dignity
       to every breath of life

John Lyons
