Rachel (A Poem For Rachel Claire Ward)

Can you peer through those eyes?
The radiance must be blinding.

As I gaze into them
I've come to understand

What the ancients must have felt,

Looking up toward
The shimmering night sky.

All the mysteries and wonders of life

Are clearly reflected, as is the light.

And even if I'd never be sure
What chemicals kindle
A star's faithful burn

I would still spend every night

Dreaming up poems about
Your eyes.

Hunter Dusten
