Absorbing Color


To see
Takes time
Like to have a friend,

Investment
Choice
Slowing

Presence
In the moment,
Being all there,

Saturated, nourished
Fed on abundance of
TIME


Absorbing color
And taste and heat
And heart

Fragrant and flush,
Vibrant with possibility,
Bloom of life

Wistful and a little
Bittersweet
As I wonder

How many moments
I’ve missed,


But not today!

For today
I SEE,
And am grateful.

*This poem is dedicated to my dear friend Pamela, who chooses to be my friend without counting the cost, who longs to see with her heart, and who is learning to appreciate poetry just because it makes my heart sing. You are treasure!
