Perfect Golden Light

Updated on January 3, 2011

In this perfect golden light
I search for what I think
Is you

In the quickening dusk
The crispness of the air
I breathe

Where I think you might
Walk in invisible grace amidst
The trees

Where perhaps you run
Warily in the mown hay
Or soar

High against a blue backdrop
Scanning with keen eyes
For you

As I pursue you on clumsy feet
And wonder, is it truly you I seek
Or me?

      With a backdrop of such exquisite beauty one cannot help but think of God and the saying that "he dwells within us" In nature we are able to feel the closeness of the creator...we become one

      Searching for something other than food, shelter or beings of the opposite gender is a purely human trait.

      Simple yet elegant as always. Your poems always blossom nicely in the mind.

      As we go through life what we search for changes and in the end there is only us. This is so lovely and truly speaks to me. Thank you Tom.

      It truly is a human trait, to seek out someone, something to thank when we are blessed with the awareness of the beauty around us...God, nature or a loving someone who touched our heart or stirred our soul and opened our eyes with a Perfect Golden Light.

      Very nice.
