YOU #1

Just before leaving

Standing on your doorstep

I saw your face

As If somehow it had just appeared

With more planes than seemed possible in the three dimensions of one face.

Reflecting the lights

and shades of darkness

of so many days

Of weight and waiting

Light and sorrow

A richness of hues

Normally impossible

Without color

The brightest

Between human spirits

The colors of ancient hope

Of the weight of forever

Lightened  at the last I noticed

Shining though an equally invisible door,

opening to share a secret Before parting.
