My Most Beautiful Thing

Look at me and smile.

My most beautiful thing?

You see me and I see you.

We are not just connected. We see each other.

For me, that is where the love is.


Your beautiful smile.

I see your smile, but I also see all the heartache too.
Some we shared together, and some you just carry with you, wherever you go.

In you, I see me, and you, and everyone else I’ve ever loved.

I can’t get close enough to you, though I try. Even when you are far away, you are as near as my breath.


A stranger, as myself, walking in the world.
You and I looked, and said hello. That was all we needed to know.


We are in tune together, and on cue.

Allowing all the exhaustion to fall away, until all there is left is us.

Thank you.

    What a refreshing post that it made me laugh and smile and LOVE you all the more for posting a photo-poetic way (though not exactly like photojournalistic way) of presenting your most beautiful thing!! <3 <3
