inspiration from a picture of the initiation well at Quinta da Regaleira in Sintra, Portugal.
Taste the dampness in the air
saturated with the echo of another voice,
another figure who once brought her love to these very stones
and christened it with a lingering kiss.
His hand in her hair, the silence trembling with the orchestra of two pulses
beating to feel every second of this stolen moment -
can you hear the resonance of a long forgotten promise?
