A Poem About His Eyes

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. πŸ˜‰

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.

  1. Nicely done πŸ˜‰ It is difficult to capture the magic in those eyes, but I think you’ve done it well!

    Btw this pesky CJ must be especially difficult throwing out challenges like that πŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you, CJ.
      I tried to keep in mind that I have a bullseye painted on me. LoL
      Seriously, though, I wanted it to be more abstract than concrete. I assure you, the capturing of any magic was unintentional. I was just trying to portray my own feelings and ideas. And I may have been trying to channel Shakespeare a little.
      And yeah, that pesky CJ. Geez, who does she think I am? Throwing out a challenge like that.

    1. Aw, thanks…I wanted it to seem more like a sonnet because the peson its about is into Shakespeare and I thought it fitting.
