Reverence is an open invitation to reflect on one’s own admirations and philosophies. Although spiritual in its ethos, the work is not intended to be strictly sacred nor secular, and only serves to evoke each individual’s unique, meaningful interpretation.
“When I Look At You” (2016) by Anna Sluder
Every time I look at you
It is like getting drunk on the universe
Like seeing something beautiful and forgetting the words
To a line you had perfected and so eloquently rehearsed.
