a poem about allowing the beauties around us into our souls

eyelids and earlids

 

beauty from color

shapes

scenery

glimmer from a lake

 

all lost with eyelids closed

 

birds songs in the forest,

symphony of city car horns

beeping to a crescendo

 

cooing of a morning dove

breathing of a lover

 

all lost with ear lids shut

 

is one better

to lose than the other

 

one would have to ask Helen Keller

but would she really know what’s missed

when eyelids are closed from sights

or ear lids are shut from sounds

 

open your lids

love life to the limits

take in marvelous sights

waltz to glorious sounds

88 fingers

The simplest pleasures in life are the ones we take for granted. Very good poem.
