see love

We must remind ourselves
sometimes…every time…that
…searching to be loved
…to love
that thing it is, the essence
of it…it is unique, many and varied
it comes in more than one model
style, category, slot…whatever
and looking for what we know
had before, felt, experienced,
lived inside of…
…blinds us to
what we don’t know
haven’t felt
whatever…and allows—almost
demands—that love
pass us by
keep eyes
open, looking, aware, your
heart (not in the off
position) and it is possible
(all that is needed)
to see love;
…wearing different clothes
…smiling another way
…holding the hands of a child
that might
be in front of you
right now.
