“I am looking at sound…” (and I am thinking of synesthesia)

It is the color of light,

The shape of sound high in the evergreens
It lies suspended in hills,
A blue line in a red sky.

I am looking at sound.

I am hearing the brightness
Of high bluffs and almond trees
I am tasting the wilderness
of lakes, rivers, and streams
Caught in an angle of song.

I am remembering water
That glows in the dawn
The motion tumbled in earth
Life hidden in mounds.

I am dancing a bright beam of light.

I am remembering love.

Poem from the movie Love Jones.

The actress: Hailee Steinfeld for Miu Miu
