light (love itself)

love itself

“In streams of light I clearly saw 
The dust you seldom see, 
Out of which the nameless makes 
A name for one like me. 

I’ll try to say a little more: 
Love went on and on 
Until it reached an open door
Then love itself 
Love itself was gone.”

song by Leonard Cohen

  1. John I think your art has a “smoking warm intensity” here…….the deep feelings which Cohen expresses in his song but with the “light” of optimism coming through. Love is always ready to enter any open doorway.
