Final Moments

I hear my name

I see your face

in unusual places.


My words come back to me

exactly as I said them

in different contexts.


I see the world

it sees more of me

then it shows me myself.


It is at once brilliant and excruciatingly exhausting.



Paths Open

Eyes cannot forget what the heart has seen
it echoes through everything

The heart cannot unsee what is has felt
eyes witness it everywhere

What the heart loves, makes it whole
better and beyond itself

Love heals the heart
and opens eyes to new possibilities
