What I Want Seen

Me

See my blue eyes

They reflect the water I hold dear

See my mouth

It utters cherished words of love

See my forehead.

It houses a mind for teaching.

See my body.

It has carried me through life’s landmines.

See my heart.

It opens and expands to let in life.

See my soul.

Most of all see this for from this my poetry flows.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
