Seeking A Poem
written by: Heidi Baker
I look for you before breakfast,
hair uncombed, in my pajamas.
I listen for you in rain’s rhythm,
my older son's words,
my younger son's sleepiness,
and in the movements of our cats.
I sense you in my hands,
gently gliding along the soft hairs on my face,
between conscious thoughts.
You're a dream and a song,
truth mixed with whatever we all wait for,
so much unspoken just behind our eyes.
I pick up my pen and begin.
