eye poem

Elena, dark room with sunlightToo easy a target, almost,
to  tap out a poem centering
on your childlike innocence
or boundless curiosity,
but that incredible spark
of exquisite beauty bursting
moment by everlasting moment
from the depths of those
unyieldingly blue eyes,
that’s where I pause.

Eyes so round, so blue,
one can’t help but suspect
the entire universe rests
in the core of your gaze
and its overwhelming gravity
pulls each and every one of us in—
in to you with love.
