Through These Eyes

Through these eyes

the light seems brighter

with each passing year.

Through these eyes

the flowers riot in colors

too beautiful to ignore

Through these eyes

music is heard and seen

in geometric notes that gleam

Through these eyes

love flows freely

and is received gratefully

Through these eyes

pain and remorse

flow like the river in its course

Through these eyes

laughter carries the butterfly

ever upward in joy

Through these eyes

justice is pursued in

sincere and thorough investigation

Through these eyes

sixty years on this earth

seen with the same spirit as at their birth.

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.
