A Flower For An Eye

A Flower For An Eye

The heavens wide and high for me.
The arc of infinity.
Blue rayed petals spray and cry.
A flower for an eye.

To gaze into the sacred heart
of space and mathematic god.
To taste the stars,
and dream of forces inbetween.
The path the masters trod.

An eggshell eye among a crowd.
A swarm of daisies in a field.
A maze of thought, of contemplation.
A planted nation.
Yet one of awe.
A different mind.
A flower for an eye.
A look of love to distant sky.

Your skill with words never ceases to amaze me. This one is truly great, and musical! I could hear a tune in my head as a I read it - would be great lyrics for a song. Maybe that's what you intended when you wrote it. (and ... I like "an eggshell eye")

Well, I guess you answered Pam's question from yesterday...

Beautifully done.

Thankyou as ever for your support and warm comments. Listening to Shakespeare the other night reminded me how good He simply was. I need to read more!
