Eye Story


innocent eyes
playful and jovial
beaming smiles

naughty eyes
winking at neighbor
inviting home

lavender eyes
aromatic laughter
tears hide within

eyes of the sun
lighting up this world
we fear darkness

eyes of the moon
guarding world in sleep
soothing darkness

man with eyes
prefers to be blind
under dark glasses

blind man
wishes he had eyes
behind dark glasses

sharp eyes
wandering across land
hunting for prey

sharp eyes
wandering across land
do not be the prey

mystical eyes
speak a thousand words
do you listen?


This Haiku is shared with Carpe Diem and the Prompt is Eyes.

  24. This one is very craftily done! You have juxtaposed opposites so beautifully!

    man with eyes
    prefers to be blind
    under dark glasses

    blind man
    wishes he had eyes
    behind dark glasses

    And

    sharp eyes
    wandering across land
    hunting for prey

    sharp eyes
    wandering across land
    do not be the prey

    Lovely work!
