I have always thought of my eyes as organs that take and/or receive.  I think I can do better.


Giving Eyes


For most of my life my eyes have been taking

constantly consuming desiring more

seeing one seeing two seeing three its not enough

eyes that take are never satisfied


Sometimes my eyes patiently receive

the pulled back curtain and open door reveal

the mysteries shared to a collective delight

but maybe there can be one thing better


Even less frequently my eyes give

and this is by far the best of the three

they give attention respect kindness and grace

today and always my eyes are for giving
