Presence

I sensed your intensity
Your stare
A definite change of atmosphere
Of attitude
Before I spotted you

There, in the dark
A black form
Within the ashen room

You
Watching me
As I -You
Our curiosity intermingling
In silence
As the hour shifts to three

Your presence, my friend
Is as real as mine
And I am not afraid

Dana

    1. You sort of get use to it, It's just there and you can't stop it so you should just learn from it and move on.

  7. You authenticate the existence of connections before awareness of them exist.

  8. We only experience a fraction of ourselves so how can we not miss most of what is...especially when there is little vocabulary to point to it. Thank you for your additions to our collective language of knowing.
