sunday august 3rd

"You know, there's this picture of your father
in the background at a party
& he has that long, looking face that he gets....
that looking off in the distance face...but I know
he's looking at me in this picture.
I know, because I was there & I remember that look."
& I see it too, 
eyes searching through time,
rising over the heads of party guests,
searching for my mother- 
searching, asking for her;
the precious moment before
the light in her eyes wrapped around his.
