When I see your name
my heart gives a little skip
a little slip and recovery, to keep its balance.
Because the world shifts
a little to the side
when I see your name.
When I hear your voice,
my dreams speak to a distant, answering flute,
talking through the night, talking across the distance,
saying nothing much, and saying everything;
speaking with your voice.
When I see your face
a still space opens in me
and then expands to encompass you
and then the world,
and in the centre of that stillness,
peace, and your face.
