The Eyes Have It


And because a quote on eyes caught mine first thing today…

Poetry Month Day 11.

The windows to look through,
Insight to the soul.
The fire of the belly.
The furtiveness of a bully.
The eyes say it all.

Clouds to the rains of grief.
The answering gleam of mischief.
The hardness of anger.
The tenderness of affection.
The eyes have it all.

Shuttered in pain,
Staring in shock.
Averted at lost hope,
Alight with laughter at shared jokes.

The joy of togetherness.
The angst of loss.
The sadness of acceptance
The bleakness of thoughts.

The unsaid.The ignored.The unwelcome.
They never lie.
It’s the beholder who in denial,refuses to look,
Accept the signs.

The eyes say it all.
