Eye for a Mind

At the light hour

Sunshine dries

The night dew,

Shade and shelter,

Rest and pain.

The curtains seem

Like they lie

When they

Remain unopened. 

Yet to wake

The glory of the morning

Walks with

Measured assurances.

The new flowers smile

To kiss

The ray of the sun,

With the colorful breeze. 

The morning

Newspaper headlines

Advertise the muddy

And gruesome night stories,

Lives bear

An unspoken tale.

You whitewash

Your shadows

Ringing a bell of fate.

Life is a new game each step.

The rules are unknown

Till you see

With your own eye

For a mind.
