Undertones

In your eyes I see wonder
Long overdue, but constant
A transient melting
Secure in its own worth
Thawing long and even
Like spring’s quickening
Breath coming in shallow gasps
Before exploding into life
A twinkle and a nod
Exacting patience from afar
And I understand it
because I am just like you
In love with the idea
of love
Reaching for it through time
Through space and structure
Green in blue, gold in red
Consciously transforming
Wrapping around me like skin
Like your breathing, in tune
Creating melodies fair
Yet wooden in the delivery
Until blended with yours
So perfect

In your eyes I see wonder
A mirror reflecting upon itself
From beginning to end
Always the same inflection
Just different undertones.
