For My Eyes Only
It’s day two of National Blog Posting Month – for me anyway! Here’s a poem I wrote today, inspired by the misty morning and the sunrise afterwards. It’s called “For My Eyes Only” – enjoy! 🙂
As soon as I step outside
from head to toe
it feels like I’m walking
low slung cloud covers
the entire landscape,
my eyes are made redundant
only my feet know
where I’m going.
It’s strange how quiet
everything suddenly seems
no birds chirping, or leaves rustling
like the world is too busy watching, waiting
for it to become visible again.
From out of nowhere I catch a glimpse
blinking her eyes, rubbing away sleep
the mist disappearing more and more
as she slowly rises,
like a veil has being lifted
but instead of a bride hiding beneath
it’s a beautiful, radiant day.
Light filters through patchy cloud
highlighting dewdrops in the grass
shimmering like diamonds in the sun,
a haze of pink borders the sky
creeping higher and higher
up the horizon
until there’s an explosion of colour
like a silent firework display
is happening for my eyes only. . .
Nature never ceases
to amaze me.
