Impression Sunrise by Claude Monet

a stroke here

a smudge there

splashes of color
that fade to gray

lively lilting–
legible
worn and wilting–
tangible

this Monet that is
you and I

from afar we make sense
up close we are a mess,
a Michelangelo gone mad,
a tarnished Sistine ceiling
where beauty peeks through

and through each moment spent with you
I am forever confused–
forever falling
flailing
fawning
fearing over the fact
that you may not fully be mine

I find this composition
to be concerning,
this painting
to be painful,
yet wonderful at the same time

I cannot complete what is not finished.
I cannot see what is not in focus.
