A Poem About His Eyes

My response to a challenge CJ gave me a couple of weekends ago-to write a poem about someone’s eyes for her. I hope this works, CJ. 😉

The Windows To His Soul

By Jesi Scott

“They say that the eye is the window to the soul. But it is the soul that is the window.”

~Andrew Hamilton



Oh, to swim in that crystal ocean,

So clear and deep and sea-blue

You can see to the bottom;

See the sun shining on clear days,

And watch the storm clouds gather

And cast shadows over the waves.


Oh, to sink beneath the waters

And feel the strength of the current;

let it sweep you in its might

to be washed upon the shore,

or dashed against the rocks-

to feel your life restored.


Oh, to drown in the ocean’s soul

And be baptized and reborn,

A castaway found and rescued;

To see his soul and thus appraise,

To look through his windows

And feel the warmth of his gaze.

Jesi Scott is an aspiring writer of novels, a poet, and blogger. She has guest-blogged over at The Well-Tempered Bards, and has a post featured at For Love Of…. Jesi has two poems published in Memories of Mist, a literary anthology, and one published story in a newsletter. She is currently working on releasing her first poetry collection as well as writing her first novel. When not writing, Jesi can be found getting lost in bookstores, singing and dancing around the house, experiencing culture with friends, and generally having fun with her four sons when they aren’t driving her weeping into her closet, which she calls her Padded Cell. She loves to rescue stray bookmarks, as well as books, and has opened her heart to any and all stories needing a home. Archery is her current favorite thing ever but you might want to stand back a little as she still has a tendency to drop the bow occasionally.
