Impressions

I stand before
the recording you left
hundreds of, thousands of,
countless moments before.
Yet here we meet.
You’re practically here.
A holographic soul
from the unknown.

Did you stand?
Did your half moon belly
swell under your smock
kissing the canvas ever so
lightly leaving bits of filament
so fine that they’ve been buried
under layers of shellac and time?

Are your exhales, tiny bits of
atmosphere nestled in here too?
Perhaps a print, a pause, a hair,
or any other trace of you?

Did you perspire?
Was your work labored or light?
Were there guests or just silence
there beside you?

I want to slip through
the glass.
I want to hover
above you,
silently,
lovingly,
intently watching
the way you work.

Time has left
many clues.
And I will be happy
with them.
The gifts you have
left, though silent
as stones signal out
in cacophonous glory.

Thank you Sir Rembrandt.
Thank you dear Leo.
The strokes you have left,
the trails of your hands
still take away breath
for forever.
