This Memorial Day Weekend put my SURFBOARD sweatshirt to good use. It’s going to be a great summer, I can feel it.
~ Billy Collins, from “Love” (via the-final-sentence)
And the reason I am writing this
on the back of a manila envelope
now that they have left the train together
is to tell you that when she turned
to lift the large, delicate cello
onto the overhead rack,
I saw him looking up at her
and what she was doing
the way the eyes of saints are painted
when they are looking up at God
when he is doing something remarkable,
something that identifies him as God.
