Love Poem: A LONGEST MOMENT BEGINS

A LONGEST MOMENT BEGINS

My longest moment begins
without you
The cherished sun-smiles
that hide within expectation;
   the cloud bellows white
like sheets wet by fitful
dreams of losing you
   WHEN did moments charge
in blood?  And between spaces
  bent fingers reaching for you?
Oh where, where is this "YOU?"
My passion -->
  (larger,
       shrinking)
dearest love! 
[perhaps a heart caught 
 in the throe of passion
is a blue-jay egg within my
   throat!]
