|"Hand Eye Coordination" by Liam York (Wikimedia)|
Eye wonder where all the colors go
when the iris turns shades of gray
into the pupils solid black circle.
Eye wonder where dogs see images
in x-rays or in blots and spots,
or a canine peering through the layers.
Eye wonder if the walls are empty
where the cornea meets the veins
stimulating the nerves of I.
Eye wonder about a lot of things,
and sometimes there are few in between,
but I can see a lot though I'm blind.
Post script: I was playing around with repetition for effect, and fused it together with a little play on words theme. "Eye" wonder if my fellow readers would like to try out this style. It is a nice little challenge, and I know a few of you would enjoy it. If you do try it out could you please link your version of this poetic style back to me so that I may read it. I'd love to see what you guys and gals come up with.
