I will look for you

I look for you
In the crevices of a book's spine
On the shadows of a page

I look for you
Entwined, perhaps, in the piano's strings
Or shut up in the bench with the sheets of music

I look for you
Where the hairs of the brush take root
Clumped with careless flecks of cadmium yellow

I look for you
In the electric touch of the waterfall's spray
And in the swinging nest abandoned to the leaves and wind

I look for you
On the back of his slowly moving hand
Where the hairs whorl golden red

I look for you
Nestled in the swales of warm pillows
Sparking between the sheets

I look for you
In the lights and patterns of my own closed eyes
And the wash of sound lapping at my ears

I look for you
All my life I am looking

And this morning here, here you are!
Looking back at me
I catch my breath, looking back at me

Tomorrow I will look again

I can't! I wouldn't dare! I have no desire to! :-)

This is so beautiful. Wish I'd seen it before.

Moose, I got the video on Matisse's JAZZ - if you want to email me ,I'll tell you about it. I thought I'd blog it and i still might but have been too absorbed in the God interview No.15.

It's all about the looking, the noticing. That was beautiful, thank you so much. Reminds me a new day is a new opportunity.
