My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

October 13, 2010 “The Pearl”

My beautiful  daughter: The Pearl


For One Shot Wednesday

“the pearl”


see into my soul

my eyes will tell you who I am

if you catch the fleeting glimpse


see them watching

they will know you

look through you

they will undo you


my eyes reflect my heart

my eyes will tell you who I am

I am youth

I am strength

I am beauty

I am pure

I am the pearl…

what will your eyes reveal?

  1. eyes are very revealing but it seems as though what you see in yours (your daughter) is a treasure worth writing about. You have an interesting way of thinking that brings a great perspective to words.

    The eyes really do have an incredible power to create a connection – even more than words I think. I wonder why this connection isn’t focused on more in society – maybe it’s too private or deep or too dangerous to our necessary illusions. Very nice and powerful poem. Thanks.

    • Thanks for the visit, and for the kind comment. I think direct eye contact for most everyone in just too intimate.
