gone

that view

reflected in those pools of eyes

was of worlds beyond my ken

but places i knew i must travel to

she just smiled that smile

unawares of the way

my world’s axis tilted

and as i fell headlong

she murmured

something timeless

    The lines,
    “…those pools of eyes
    was of worlds beyond my ken
    but places i knew i must travel to…”
    They make me think of C.S. Lewis’ ‘Magician’s Nephew’ exploring new worlds by diving into infinite pools. How special when a pair of eyes can evoke such a calling.

      It is and it isn’t. It’s as much about letting go as anything. In a way I think I was writing about the loss of control when the divine comes to play in our lives. The sense that the only way forward is to surrender.It has been a recurring theme in some of my work.

    I love the way you took that quote from Bukowski and drummed your own tattoo on it, Paul, especially:
    ‘that view

    was of worlds beyond my ken
    but places i knew i must travel to’
    and
    ‘my world’s axis tilted’.
    It makes a great love poem for valentine’s Day.
