THE WINDOWS TO OUR SOUL

Our eyes the windows to our soul never take for granted For when your eyes no longer see all that life has granted thee is covered by a dark black shroud a place where light is not allowed a place to fear all you hold dear forever gone has disappeared The sun rise at the start of day ~ Still you can feel her warmth The ebb and flow ~ that you loved so ~ Still you can hear if you stand near The sky the deepest azure blue no longer can you see her hue white and fluffy clouds pass by like soft marshmallows way up high closely followed in fast pursuit angry clouds in dark black suits Ready to soak folk down below ~ Feel poignant tears as you get drenched ~ hear grateful plants their thirst now quenched Windows of your soul your panes are now opaque life goes on ~ your sight has gone darkness all around now all you have is sound ~~~~~~ but listen how your ears turn sounds to beautiful images loud and clear as blackness slowly disappears your opaque windows can now hear and darkness you must never fear ~ sweet Angels they are always near

A deep and soulful write, dear Ann. I, for one, am so grateful for my eyes and the beauty they are blessed with, and for the functionality of life they provide that I'm sure I take too much for granted. Enjoyed your rhymes and your wisdom on this subject. Blessings ~ John

Thank you dear John, I wrote this today as I have been having problems with my eyes and I await an appointment with an eye surgeon. I cannot imagine how devastating it would be to lose one's sight and like you I too am grateful for all that I see. Thank you for your kind words of support ~ with kindest thoughts Ann xx
