An absence of color
that brings my world to life?
Or the light that seems
to emanate from your eye?
All of these in a fluke of lighting,
a software glitch transmitted
from your cell to mine.
Always with me.
This poem is my response to Poetics: Look into my Eyes, the prompt from Mish
at dVerse ~ Poets Pub, which is to “Incorporate the theme of eyes into a poem.
Write about the eyes of someone close to you, your own eyes
or those of a fictional character.”
The image, a photo sent to me by my wife in our early days,
is one of the wallpapers on my phone. (without the text, written today)
