Look Through My Eyes

Clear…

Pure…

Radiant…

Photons of light,
Born of miracle,
14 billion years in the making,
Host of the universe,
Guiding,
Showing,
Foretelling…

What is true,

What is real.

Illuminating my world,
Filling my eyes.

What I see is your beauty,
Amethyst lush lavender,
Nestled under ink of night,
Jewels of you, shimmering,
Commanding night’s presence.

What I see is your magic,
Starlight diamonds,
Light years traveling to reach me,
My wanting,
My longing,
My needing the special,
The perfect…

You.

What I see is your singularity,
Willingness to be different,
To be yourself,
Saucy, sassy,
Perfumed passion,
Honey, honed wit,
Cosmos’s depth of intellect,
Dark, glistening, longing eyes,
Moist with me.

What I see is precious.

What I see is irreplaceable.

What I see is meant for me…

For my life…

Forever.

Look, my love.

Look through my eyes.

See how elegant you are.
See how you give me breath.
See the beauty of your strength.

See what I see.

Look through my eyes.

      3. Someday, I am going to see that first hand. To live that “one wild life” that Mary Oliver speaks of…a place that a poet can always go.

    1. Precisely. I think that all too often, individuals don’t give themselves credit for the richness they offer to the world. They just need to stop, reconsider, welcome, and be grateful for how they are really seen. Seen through the eyes of those that love them.

      Does that make sense?

      1. It does. I was told today that I’m not aware of the beauty I bring to the world. I was taken aback to say the least.
        I’m still reflecting on that statement.
