I see, thus I exist



I see you, when you see me

I see trees dancing to the wind’s rhythm

I see children making music in the park

I see water moving down the mountain’s back

I see couples holding hands to Beethoven’s symphonies

I see youth smoking joints to their tranquility

I see mothers answering to sons and daughters

I see the sun, and moon, and the clouds and stars.

I see rivers finishing at the ocean’s mouth.

I listen to you, when you talk to me


I see to what I listen, and I listen to what I see.


This is why I thank eyes and ears for their wild methods

On showing emotions, perceptions and sounds
