The eyes of a poet, a poem for @nola1979_nola by Tracy Diane Miller

To gaze into the eyes
Is to be privy to the mystery
For the eyes capture the mind’s images of verse
While the soul guards a poem’s history

Even poem begins so innocent
Then slowly it grows
To encompass emotion
Our lives will know

The eyes of a poet
Those windows of sorrow
Yet don’t be afraid
As hope awaits tomorrow
