Existential Friday – Oh Look !

Oh Look

Oh Look !

These eyes are windows

To your soul.

 


When art meets artifice

Whose eyes look back

At your gaze ?

 


Be the window

Clear as a night sky

Or misty as first dawn,

Is the gaze inward or outward drawn ?

 


A window, like a photograph,

Is framed with context.

It hides much, while revealing

A measured scene…

 


Oh Look !

What measure do you take,

as you gaze upon those eyes ?

      Many thanks – virtual glasses are all that can be used from this hemisphere to your own. 🙂

  2. Those words are perfect for this piece of art. Who was the artist? Eyes tell you everything you need to know.

      It was done by my wife, about 4 years ago. She would do sample pieces to go with lessons in her art classes. Liz & I both felt that if you were going to ask a student to do an activity, you should do try it yourself. I still can not believe how many teachers will assign slide-show, movie clips or posters and have never tried doing the media activity themselves. Also goes for English teachers that don’t attempt to compose stories or poetry since they were students.

      • That is a good work ethic as well. I have never asked someone who worked for me to do anything I haven’t done myself. It is just good life practice.

  3. I enjoyed your poem – art is fascinating in the way that it fascinates us. 🙂 And I love the artwork by your wife. It’s compelling.
