There are some eyes that can pull you far away from reality. Like amber waves of sunlight, you get tossed across the limitless landscape of the mind. There are some faces where beauty is enamoring and unreachable. It is within your grasp but you are forbidden to touch it. There are some laughs that are intoxicating and yet delicate. When they fade from the room, they echo throughout your heart.

One day, I said “wow” three times

The first when I looked into your eyes,

The second when I looked across the mountains in fall foliage

And the third when I looked at the night sky in those same mountains on my journey home.
