I See You

I see you. I am gazing into your vast dark with my white-blue eyes;

You of this viscous space.  You and your hand-made wise.

 

I fear you’ll shout, “Move along now! There is nothing here to see!”

Though you’d be wrong.  You’d be speaking only of the bark on the birch tree;

 

That sways and bends in the howling, blowing, keening wind … yet

Does not break.  It gives little shade to those who seek solace in the TV set.

 

I suppose I played an unplanned game of hide-and-seek.  Counting one, two, three.

Hoping mightily that none would try hard enough to find me.

 

I am tricky to find, you see, buried down and down, so deep;

Beneath years of books and words and thoughts piled steep.

 

We who dwell in the Land of Law we value thought and reason above all;

And strive from the first year in school to wrap emotion in a pall. 

 

Amid the soaring, sailing song, I heard a crack in my heart’s protective wall that did;

Allow a pouring out of pain, and love, and empathy amid;

 

A rip, a tear, a tiny thread pulled loose and the darkness deepened;

I saw clearly in each heart my own.  Seven voices rising did sweeten;

 

The sound of hallelujah rocketed, skyward on a river of song.

I see you.  I am gazing into your vast dark.  I realize it’s you, my friend I’ve known my whole lifelong.

    By working on this, you don’t have to brave severe weather, traffic jam, and
    the city smog; all of which are not sensational, by the way-just so you can get your hands on a pair of fashionable glasses.

    Write more, thats all I have too say. Literally, it seems
    as thoug you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your
    weblog when you could be giving us something informative tto read?
