Poetry Sunday

Today is February 14th, Valentine's Day, and it seems appropriate to feature a poem about love ...

The Wall Hanging I Never Noticed
by Dorothea Lasky

I never noticed before
How the red flowers hang from the blue branches
I never noticed before the light in this room
I never noticed the way the air is cool again
I never noticed anything but you
But you but you
So that I couldn’t sleep
I never noticed what was anything but you
Until I noticed you
And could not help it
Until I noticed you I could not help it
Until you made the red flowers alive again
Until the blue branches
The lemons you loved, but also the way you loved me, too
Until all of this I never noticed you
But once I did
I never minded noticing
I never stopped noticing
Until I noticed you
I never stopped noticing
Until you, I never stopped

Never stop noticing those you love.

Have a good day, and come back tomorrow for Musical Monday. More thoughts then.
