Sacred Love's Geometry (On Klimt's 'The Kiss')

Exquisite scintillating bliss
enveloping this richest kiss

damask emotions woven bold
ethereal as we behold

organic patterns gathering
these facets of our glittering.

Our treasure precious over gold
as pleasures endlessly enfold

that art beyond all property:
our sacred love's geometry

where perfect square and circle meet
with symmetries become complete

as bodies, souls, and minds entwine
in boundlessly divine design

to gift this world a paradigm
of romance that can outlast time.
