Scenery

The depth of the ocean 
In the blue of your eye
I look into them
And see what cannot die
What is age old
And circumspect
I’m silent a moment
Don’t know what to do next
But you pick it up
With a reply
Don’t you know you’re spacious
As the sky
And the eons move
And the constellations spin
I’m watching the motion
In the mountains of him
I’m watching the film
As the play reels
I’m wondering now
What it is he feels
And if he ever
Doubts his strength
I found my own
In the suspense
And I deep dive
Into the sea
I’m like the air
You can’t catch me
Only love
What we share
I’m silent a moment
And he was there
To hold on to
What can’t be spoken
I smile
And he thinks I’m joking
But I’m serious
And profound
Do you hear the silence
In the sound?
Do you see the mystery
In what can’t be held
I look at you
In the words you beheld
In the forests that grow up
To be proud and green
You’re beautiful
And you’re serene
You’re effervescent
You’re timeless, you’re pure
You’re the one thing
That I know for sure
In all that’s
Passing by
I love you and I
Don’t have to try
