Two Eyes For The Skies

Poem By Lisa Carter

I saw a moon so bright
One night
Was sure to blind my eyes,
And so I bowed my head
Instead
And looked not to the skies.

But in the lake
It’s own remake
Lay there for me to try,
And so I glanced
At it in chance
That it would satisfy.

But imitation
Though re-creation
Is not original,
And cannot hope
To therefore rope
The mind’s attention full.

And so I raised
My downward gaze,
And wished my eyes goodbye,
And would again
If were given
That moon once more to spy.

Take the world by storm,
By tempest or by flood,
Commence your reign and swiftly gain
On those left in the mud.

A stranger asked me
For my mind
Which I willingly
Gave

Any wind can whisper
It is not hard to do
Even a breeze can shake the trees
And steal a leaf or two.
