I See You

hearder image

I see you.

In the midst of thousands of sayers,

I see you.

I only pretend I am not looking but

I see you.

You speak of homes and pools and flowers.

You speak of pain, sorrow and disappointments.

Still, you shine like a diamond.

I just don’t know what to say to you;

(I enjoy your photos).

Maybe we can begin with a dialogue

And see where the road leads.

No one can compete with you

For my attention.

Dickinson’s “A Bird Came Down”

headbanner

A bird came down the walk:
He did not know I saw;
He bit an angle-worm in halves
And ate the fellow, raw.

And then he drank a dew
From a convenient grass,
And then hopped sidewise to the wall
To let a beetle pass.

He glanced with rapid eyes
That hurried all abroad,-
They looked like frightened beads, I thought;
He stirred his velvet head

Like one in danger; cautious,
I offered him a crumb,
And he unrolled his feathers
And rowed him softer home

Than oars divide the ocean,
Too silver for a seam,
Or butterflies, off banks of noon,
Leap, plashless, as they swim.

 

 — Emily Dickinson 1830 – 1886

 

The Heart Knows The Way

hearder image

In all things

Let us focus on the heart.

The mind for the most part

Sees nothing but threats and

Impossibilities.

But the heart…

It can see far ahead.

It does not take no for answer.

In fact it does not even see hurdles.

The heart obviously knows the way.

It has the strength to endure

To the very end.
