I capture the present
and sear it in memory
not some image of glory,
past or hoped for
that lurks in your mind.
I want life
your face, its canvas
telling a story
through the lines and colors
all about you
“hurts.” I see
the look in your eyes
for I am you.

Simply gorgeous, Imelda. I read it through several times, listening to the play of the words. Happy New Year.
Lovely…especially that last line…
I like it … particularly the line ‘I capture the picture and sear it in memory ..’
