Poem of the Week | I see you now by Aoife Finnegan

Eyes closing for a minute, just resting-

the mountain a dim shadow on a green lake,

shade worn lightly-

We didn’t even notice

not until years later

when it wasn’t as easy to

search a face

without being found out,

no longer unknowing.

Old woman that you never were

never wore discontent round her neck,

a thick gold chain.

Not in the gloom of the green lake as

the mountain closed over it-

Not sleeping, just resting.
