Eyes Wide Open

stumbling through the hallways of my life
knocking my knees on misplaced furniture
feeling the walls around me
hoping they would lead somewhere
tripping on memories thrown by the wayside
swallowed by the darkness
frustrated by the blindness
I rubbed my eyes
a glimmer of light
I can see it now
wide open spaces
no hallways
no walls
no broken pieces to make me stumble
just light
and hope
and something - better
my eyes are open

    Happy HNT, lady!

    It's always helps to open our eyes even when we don't like what we currently see.

    Very lovely words and photo.

    Happy HNT!

    I always like verse. Your posting reminds me of a Mark Twain quote, "You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus." When our ability to dream is shut down then it blinds us to alot of stuff.


    p.s. I also like the new big dog/little dog pic.

    Chuck, I like that quote and it's so true. Glad you like the new pic, it seemed fitting.
