eyes

25 Aug

Wee follow-up on doing the twist.

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes,
but in having new eyes. ~ Marcel Proust

It does precious little good to

turn the head
twist the neck
torque the torso

if our eyes are closed.

Especially if they’re closed

not because of sweet rest or exhaustion

but because

we feel there are

no new horizons to explore
no questions to search out
no sacred places yet to uncover or rediscover
no scaly old answers to discard because the blanket doesn’t nearly cover our feet
and we’re too afraid to admit it

or because there’s 

nothing new to see
nothing old we’re prepared to see disarmingly transformed before our

open eyes…

“What do you want me to do for you”

“Lord, I want to see.”

eyes

now we’re talking eyes…
