Your Eyes

Creative Writing Student 2020

What beautiful eyes you have

Dark chestnut, umber browns

A deep mysterious pool of life

Your amplifying black pebbles hidden

     from view, washed away

By the vibrancy of the muddled

A ray       [waves]       of light

Shines a penetrating and – 

     illuminating view into the

  murky depths


Do you know what lives at the bottom of the ocean?

Discovery channel has given me some ideas

It is creature so strange 

and different that their beauty 

betwixes all

They are described in illustrious 

words – and it always comes 

as a shock

“How could something so beautiful come from 

such a cold, ugly, bland place?”

Their mistake is their perception of the sea

The dark, mysterious depths which 

house these magic creatures

Is the true beauty that all seem to push aside

It’s the passionate darkness that brings these wonders to life
