And It's Supposed To Be Love by Juan Carlos Hernandez

And It's Supposed To Be Love by Juan Carlos Hernandez


in the idea of love,
as contemplated of the mind.
the one,
to which I placed the unknowing heart into,
brought me here, and left me behind.

This place,
an empty hall,
filled with rooms,
you have closed,
once shared.
This space,
shadowing the heart of me,
my face,
covering the tears,
once cared.

in the idea of love,
have discovered of me,
more to the passion within,
this heart, still reflecting a light,
that pushes me forth,
and pulls me,
contemplated of the heart,
more directed,
even in blindness,
because it is through this heart,
I can truly see.

fills this space,
that seemed otherwise empty,
now occupied by all that I am,
persecuted by a past,
yet preceding a future,
a place of meaningful expectations,
where this heart,
is destined,
in all of passions,
to where it is meant to be.

— April Higney

I was sat feeling very miserable this evening having not seen my lovely friend Sian for some weeks and having learnt this afternoon she was still poorly, when a guy called Juan Carlos Hernandez, music lover and jazz photographer, sent me out of the blue this beautiful poem by April Higney, which she had just written inspired by his photo And It’s Supposed To Be Love, taken by Juan Carlos Hernandez of a woman who is very special to him and that was the last photo he took of her before …

I had just dropped off this afternoon to be picked up by Sian the very last photos I took of her before …

No matter how hard I tried, no matter how eloquent a writer I am told I am, I could not put into words how I am feeling as this beautiful poetry does.

How do I explain this? I do not know the guy, never met him, never even heard of him.

I do not explain. I do not even try to explain. The best I can offer is synchronicity.

April Higney had written Passion within without knowing anything of the background to the photo. Neither know me or my background.

Juan Carlos Hernandez had posted the photo and poem on his blog.

April Higney has posted the poem and photo on her blog with a little of the background to it being written.

I would highly recommend Betweenhearts75, the blog of April Higney, where you will find yet more of her beautiful prose and poetry, each one illustrated by an equally beautiful work of art.

For my lovely friend Sian.
