Love the Seeker

Love shall find you, I
quote to myself, vision blurred
from looking. Faces

fill streets, shops, car wind-
ows, instant recognition
lighting the eyes then

blinking. What was that?
Something between mortals lit
by all-seeking love.

One thought on “Love the Seeker”

  1. That’s terrific Tom. Not simply the sentiment, which speaks directly to us all, but your careful putting-together of the lines and phrases – the essence of the poetry of course, done so superbly here. Bravo. (And brave).
