Seeking


i have looked for you
in so many
places

sought your
smile in
faces

of strangers

on crowded subways
and uneven
cobbled streets
of far away lands

watching, waiting
hoping

i will catch
a glimpse of a face
or a tilt of the head
that will remind me

of you

and when i do
i will smile

remembering

Oh yes, I've felt that sentiment expressed so sweetly in your poem.

What a tremendous photograph, I hope you'll have it framed and hang it up. In fact your whole blog is looking just gorgeous, love the banner photos and treatment.

I just had to tell you that we almost did the same "drive by" as you with the tower in Pisa. We didn't, but seriously contemplated it on our way to the Cinque Terre too!

Ah we have all been there haven't we, haunted by a face and memory.

Your photo is fabulous, the colors are amazing.

Stunning photo and very mysterious poem . . .

Dorian Susan said...

Love the photo...it jumped right out of the linky at me. Great colors and textures, and a melancholy mood. I love that.
I agree with Barb...a mysterious poem that likely means different things to different people. A delightful pairing with image.

Congratulations on your POTW!

All that little yellow bicycle needs is a sweet basket on the front and it would be perfect, just like your poetry.
