Mind's eye - (Inspired by Roger Allen Baut's picture)


Reflection draws the eye,
a shining point of white light,
surrounded, by silver grey,
glittering sharp above,
rippled blue and watermark,
focus smudges behind,
leading on to sparkling touches,
no horizon, a watery feel, for sure,

Opening my mind,

I see cats eyes, looking at me,
rail tracks of blue, painted carelessly,
a world revealed, quartz topped mountains,
rising above, a sea of ink and blue cloud,
hiding its inhabitants, from our prying eyes.

  2. Vivid imagination and the power of how mind can work, making abstract almost real, great piece of work.
