Burning pictures

I've been trying to burn pictures into my brain with the cameras in my eyes


::you waking in the morning; the way you look at me

::your head on my tummy; your cheekbones

::the cats curled on their backs in the sun; light glinting off of soft fur; curled toes; half closed eyes

::bees lazy on the false indigo, gone for a week now; little orchid flowers; deep purple

::pictures of my grandparents; memories flood in; tears just barely held back

::the scars on your leg from the accident; new, but now a part of you


::you looking at me with eyes of trust and love; a little mischeif, too

::hair blowing with the window down; red, fiery, soft; bright smile and twirling thoughts

::cars lined up on the piano; keys as parking spaces

::the love in your smile

::the love

What wonderful poetry to wake up to this morning. I'm especially moved by the one about remembering your parents' faces. You are a brilliant writer.

And I also love your photographs...especially the last one of the "I love you" notebook. The angle makes it so beautiful.
