PURSUE

We pursue happiness by any means we can

Sometimes a delicious aroma cooking in a pan

Perhaps it’s a twinkle in another person’s eyes

Although we may find it in sparkling starlit skies

A lovely piece of music can move us to the core

Carrying us across a crowded ballroom floor

Sitting with a loved one before a roaring fire

Nothing more, something simple all that we require

Happiness fills you up, all the dark spaces are now gone

Pursue a little happiness to lighten up your soul

Leaving you feeling completely relaxed and whole

 

Eyes

Eyes

Perception is everything. We trust our eyes to tell us the story.

We determine a person’s honesty and how trustworthy they may by what we discern upon looking into their eyes. We watch others reactions in order to perceive their motives and feelings and our eyes give us clues to an individual’s mood.  And truly it happens literally in the blink of an eye.

How often we are touched and sincerely moved, completely undone when peering into the eyes of a loved one we find tenderness reflected there. A moment of panic or doubt consumes us as we share something valuable and close to our hearts with another and we are suddenly calmed, their approval and acceptance untold, wordless, but completely understood.

How wrenching it can be when we peer intently at another and find the depths of pain or sadness reflected there, well hidden, but for their eyes which tell us a deeper unspoken story.

Eyes have specific appeal.  We write romantic sonnets poetry and stories about eyes.

We enjoy the beauty of our surroundings, pictures, or art.  Yet oddly enough we close our eyes when listening as a beautiful poem is read aloud, or picture a loved one while reading something particularly profound in a letter they wrote, or even when listening to music as it conjures up pictures in our mind.  Pictures we created with our eyes and wish now to recall.
