I dream eyes –
…caramel melting into brandy
reflecting bar lights and smoke.
…sun sparkling on the water
of a clear, deep mountain lake.
…deep and tender dripping down,
sinking into opaque filmy whispers.
These eyes I dream.
Whirling, whorling, spiraling, dancing to become the Sun -
Then sinking to earth to grow -
as daisy, buttercup, bachelor button, snapdragon, rose, mum -
Yearning towards the sun, following its course across the sky,
they sigh as the sun sinks into the west - eyes sparkling as they close -
waiting impatiently for sun to rise and them to open again.
These eyes I dream…
