Cloudy days suddenly bright
Sit aware, conscious, deliberate
The most beautiful… I have ever seen

There is perfect balance,
symmetry in graceful gestures
Smile, acknowledgement

I can’t help but wonder and wander within
your glance
The pale possibility: maybe
you are choosing me
actively, right now

I love seeing your face
echoed in kids’ faces
I love seeing calm in you rise,
surface a knowing look
Yet these moments, like right now, leave me feeling like a thief
El bandito,
stolen from the universe permission to stare
Your beauty
Your space
You‘re better than I’d imagined
Every now and then my imagination fails me

Sometimes I fail memorizing tests,
where you have to recite what you just saw
But not this time.
This time I can tell you the secret name
given to every time we have been together
every part of you I have seen
