Poet’s Eyes

 

See the world through poet’s eyes

No, not just any artist’s pair,

Specifically, mes yeux gris.

Come and see my panorama

 

See the world through poet’s eyes

Come, look out from inside me

Change perspectives for a moment,

Set aside your vantage point

 

See the world through poet’s eyes

Look beyond the ’merely there’

Find reclusive truth concealed

In secret hid behind all life

 

See the world through poet’s eyes

Words representing, icon-like

Connection with a truer truth

In which we live, squirm, swim and die

 

See the world through poet’s eyes

Word-icon fabric delicately

Unwraps veneer of life

Reveals eternal spirit-quest
