The heart knows when it knows
Follow the fluttering butterfly inside you,
I can see you but do you really see me?
How can you know what it’s like to be?
Surface impressions can be so very deceiving
if the onlooker is by a narrow mind perceiving.
From "The Quatrains" ongoing writings since the early '90's
If you are…
a fairly incandescent will-o-the-wisp
fold your wings and float awhile
in the stream
light is beautiful when reflected off water
If you get caught…
stealing secret glances
tell them it’s only because
you want to see the world
through their shining eyes
maybe the way they are now
maybe the way they perceived
when everything was terrifying and new
in magical ways that even they’ve forgotten
