a poem about allowing the beauties around us into our souls

eyelids and earlids


beauty from color



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

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