Watch, Listen, Read I Find You by Lizzie Lovejoy We find you in the places your echo hesitates a sound can give you pause to wait linger and appreciate the shadow you left behind for us to find. I find you in rocks, looking through the eye of a hagstone while listening to the cry of gulls on the rooftops and cliffs. I see you in the way wood drifts up on the sand, like the piece from your honeymoon. I see you in glass on the shoreline, strewn about and rounded by salt water, collected in palms. I find you, not where the water is calm, but in the storms, the thrashing of waves. I find you when wandering in newly discovered caves because all darkness is worthy of being explored. I hear you in the silence, in acknowledging its place finding there are moments we all need breathing space. I find you in strangers who talk using their hands having conversation I can’t even halfway understand but I catch a moment, a clip, one sentence in many and you’re the laugh without context, but I don’t need any. I see you in her dancing, though she is only three, and sometimes when she’s singing, I can see a part of me. I find you in pies, savoury and sweet, confusing the two, a tradition you’d repeat, one I never experienced, but felt through time I find your heart and hold it close to mine. There are places you are that I have mourned,but there are pieces of you I have adorned. I wear your sunshine around my throat and your hug is in my favourite autumn coat. I find you in your words, these women's words like a flock of every kind of North Sea bird your voices carry over the brine I’ll keep your words and share all of mine because if I can find you, you might find me and I want to give you the best that I can be I see you, I hear you, I hold you inside until your memory and your myth collide. I find you when I’m walking and a song starts the play, because I can’t help moving, it starts with a sway but turns into a dance out into the street, no longer the subtle tapping of feet, I’m spinning and singing the way we always do. These are the moments where I find you.
