So… Sue 🙂
I saw the daffodils – gold against blue skies.
Deep green stems, distorted in crystalline water, held my gaze.
I didn’t see him, across the room,
holding her hands, across the table.
I didn’t see his eyes full of love, holding her gaze.
I didn’t see her shine as he placed the ring upon her finger.
I didn’t see the diamond sparkle or the gold glitter.
I remained in place, remembering his words from the day before.
I only saw the daffodils.
They filled my being and I was of them,
without identity or name.
I was absorbed.
I was free.
