Something of the unseen beyond
can be gleaned from consideration
of the human visage.
Once encountered in youth,
the human face never really grows old.
It ages, certainly, yet always retains
the signature of youth which was
present at first sight.
It is possible that this experience
constitutes more than mere sight
and acts like a recognition.
Consciousness, sifting time,
quickly settles into
its own familiarity,
which is eternal.
