There for you.
Our shadows pass lightly over the landscape. We pause and look out over the future. Your soft unquestioning eyes search for mine – you are always a part of my journey. You amaze me.
We turn away and leave that path to be together for a while.
Rushing time will soon wash us both up onto an unimaginable landscape, a pure place that even our shadows cannot touch. When you turn and look back for me I will be there for you. How could I not be?
Notes from the Word Hoard
The way the exercise works is explained here.
the space beyond
a space in front of us
you are always there
always a part of my journey
space I have not touched
just near enough
the shadow in the landscape
we both look out over the same future
touched not even by our shadows
not touched there
water and path
always a part of my journey* Selected
I have been learning about the spiritual values of landscape from a friend, and this moment with Charlie expressed that for me.
