Their Mysterious Eyes — #writephoto

Sue Vincent's photo prompt Eye for #writephoto

The arc’s reflection made an eye.
They laughed when I asked, “Can it see?”
What’s looking at us walking by
May laugh and measure differently.
The dark might have its ways to know
A brighter truth that it won’t show.
Let us walk. I do not mind.
I hope those eyes like what they find.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. Well put, Frank:
    ‘The dark might have its ways to know
    A brighter truth that it won’t show’.
    We have a similar bridge here in the village – I must see if there is an eye in its reflection!

  2. A beautiful poetic response to the image Frank, I especially love ‘Let us walk. I do not mind.
    I hope those eyes like what they find’, where you give those eyes the unconditional freedom to see as they wish.

    Clever way of seeing something which others may miss! Like the humor too, Frank!

  5. “Let us walk. I do not mind.
    I hope those eyes like what they find.”

    Great ending. I like how the last two lines dismisses the previous apprehension. You excel at rhyming verses.
