TITLE: "Let Us Live Now Only This..."

This poem is a part of a sequence involving two characters- Eamon and Gracie. Most of the sequence has been Eamon's voice written ("talking") to Gracie, however in this piece, Gracie is speaking. I wrote it after reading some of Rilke which is where the title, and the epitaph (or is it epigram? I get the two mixed up sometimes)come from.
“Let Us Live Now Only This…”

“…But now let us cross over
and invest this world where
everything is lunar.”

I.
The radiance of silver
Turns your face from
A living being into something
Lunar. You are not of earth
Tonight. Taking my hand,
You pull me up to walk
The paths your steps haunt
In dreaming. I pluck
A bud from the garden and
Cradle it in the hand you hold.
Maybe your strength will
Coax it into bloom as you
Have waited with precision
For me to unfurl.

II.
Here I am, my full color
Reflected in your silvered self,
Changing something lunar into
A work of artful glass from our
Favorite cathedral in Rome.
Moonlight turned stone floors
Into rainbows I could touch.
You smiled when I knelt
In that pooled color,
And reverently drank my fill.
I pulled you down,
Cupped my hands to your
Mouth, and you drank with me.
