Lord give me eyes
that note gentle lavenders
among desolate grays.

Eyes to See


Drawing “Dragon’s Den”  (with self portrait) by Deanna Marie Metts 

To look into another’s eyes
And truly see the soul that cries –
The fear and angst on which it feeds
The love that lost, the heart that bleeds
The expectation that misleads
The loveliness beneath the needs
The strength behind the smallest deeds
The blooms among the choking weeds.
This trampled soul with courage tries
Beyond what meets the eye implies.
