BLUE BLIND EYES

(First God Sonnet from GOOD ACRES SANCTUARIES by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope always in a cow named Misty [“Miss Misty,” as I fondly call her], who is blind and yet sees way more than I could ever hope to see.”)

What can you tell me of your blue blind eyes?

Did you once see horrors I’ll never know?

Look at you now! I see for you the “why’s?”

Why blind a blue soul when you see my glow?

What can you tell me of your blue blind eyes?

Did you witness what was mine to unveil?

Look at you now! Capturing all my cries.

Why blind a blue soul when you are my braile?

Blue blind eyes, I was blind but now I see.

What I see is “we,” blue and blind and breath.

I have seen enough to know that it’s “we,”

blue blind eyes and me, until we are death.

Sometimes all we have are those gentle sighs.

Thank you, “Miss Misty,” for your blue blind eyes.
