I Am Remembering Love

It is the colour of light,
The shape of sound high in the evergreens
It lies suspended in hills,
A blue line in a red sky.

I am looking at sound.

I am hearing the brightness
Of high bluffs and almond trees
I am tasting the wilderness
of lakes, rivers, and streams
Caught in an angle of song.

I am remembering water
That glows in the dawn
The motion tumbled in earth
Life hidden in mounds.
I am dancing a bright beam of light

I am remembering love.

– Sonia Sanchez

    • Thanks Jack! It is a difficult emotion to capture and most efforts seem false in some way. I really like how this poem chooses to describe love.

      And I’m still laughing about your Heads Down post! That video you posted articulated my emotions so well!!!
