Eye Site

Sometimes if we look
 too long at the trees
we forget the stars,
forget the seas.
When our eyes are filled
with the  everyday,
of  solid pigment
and heavy clay
we forget there is more
than the scene before
our face.
That’s why we read,
that’s why we dream,
it’s our salvation,
our grace,
our imagination.


This is for PAD and NaPoWriMo on Day 8 of the April Poem a Day challenge.

  1. Sometimes we can't see the beauty that's right in front of us...our grace is that we read and dream and try to open our hearts. Lovely poem.
