Day 116
10:48 pm

eyes, sea change

There are the things we see,
The things we want to see,
The things we can not help, but

……………sea change

I decided to look up at the
Cold Sky, with its specks of light
well beyond the city’s wash, past
the darkness, looking for pairs of
eyes, real eyes to stare in to

……………you fell away from the
vastness, were your arms open
wide or eyes tightly shut?

So many of you floating around,
hands outstretched, legs treading
wavelengths, smiles reflecting the
moon down to us in patterns we
are to catch as wisdom that whack
us on the side of our heads

……………you have no idea how, no
inkling as to how much, your
departure has affected me

Though your spirit, all of you, your
latter bodies, are merely the
energy we feel around us,
sometimes, you might want to
know, it is not quite enough

……………I sit still, waiting for contact
