Claritas

by Joanne Marisa Leow
"the artistic discovery and representation
of the divine purpose in anything
or a force of generalisation which would
make the esthetic image a universal one,
make it outshine its proper conditions"

--- A Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man
by James Joyce.


Why after just one morning
   of being stalked
     by your eyes,
do I feel as if
   you have
     seeped through my pores
engulfing my senses?
In one (lucid) moment
   of blinding
     shining
       luminous
         truth
I see with (absolute) certainty
   what we can become:
     sunlight
       sweetness
         pureness
           and dew.
