Poem - Close the Eyes

The poem “Close the Eyes” was inspired by a comic titled “When to Close Your Eyes”. The strip explored music, feeling rain, running under the moonlight, hugging a friend, smelling food, taking a bath, feeling wind in the hair, looking away during a scary movie, and then finally falling asleep.

Close the Eyes

Close the eyes for a time
when space invites a quick retreat
instead allowing the senses’ span
to invade vision's land

sound moves to music’s pace
words to sounds in close rapport
inspiring thoughts that fly above
the span of earth beneath the soar

returning raindrops to the ground
splashing softly upon dry skin
angels blessing with their tears
the mortals striving to exist

these beings seeking touch
to address the quiet voids
connection absent if none acquire
something to sate the rapt desires

twilight enveloped beneath soft sheets
the day experienced is complete
now the eyes are closed tight
treasuring moments without sight.
