With Eyes Closed

When something we’re doing doesn’t seem right,
with our eyes closed, we look for an insight.
 It isn’t something obvious we feel,
it’s more like a sense that it isn’t real.

There’s something amiss; it could turn out wrong.
Something is missing or doesn’t belong.
In our process have we left something out?
Maybe we need is to try a new route.

It’s not what we’re doing, it’s why it’s done.
If intent was wrong, it must be undone.
Soulfully we ask just what should we do?
To each of our minds the answer came through.

If we let love flow, we can clear the air.
With our new insight, we both will be fair.

We live and learn, and thus become more wise and it is through our own mistakes that we sometimes make along the way that we gain wisdom and that will never stop , we simply now understand one another better. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

Why is this so difficult to understand "Maybe we need is to try a new route." - it is wisdom.

Your 3 stanzas reminded me of my poem today, from Acts 5: Ananais & Sapphira - slain for lyingvtompeter & thus, to God (?). The final lines is good advice for all relationships, especially two by two. ThanX Coach Bill

As Abraham Lincoln said "Let us listen to our better angels. An engaging sonnet, my friend, Robert

“It’s not what we’re doing, it’s why it’s done.” No words could be more truer. A wonderful Sonnet Bill; great job! (:

when love enters the situation, the way becomes clear. With love, insight prevails and conflicts are diminished. A profound sonnet, dearest Bill. I particularly liked the line: soulfully we ask just what should we do.... you're gifted

indeed when a feeling seems surreal Bill there is usually something strange going on, a sensory overload perhaps or just lost in the moment, the latter is probably more likely to be good, a very interesting Sonnet, I do like the way you approach the situation, cheers David

So true-- It isn’t something obvious we feel, it’s more like a sense that it isn’t real. We know it by intuition--I like the advice in ending lines, Bill.

Such a great sonnet, Bill. Your Imagery and diction shed more enchantment on your poem. Thanks for sharing

Oh I really like this Bill. Reminds me of one of my favorite quotes. "When There's Doubt Don't" . We should do all things with a happy heart and a desire to please The Lord. Good Stuff. God Bless. JB
