This post is inspired directly by a photo taken and shared by one of my favorite bloggers here at WordPress, ElusiveTrope. I was so captivated by the image, I knew something must be written to honor it. I do not claim to do it justice, but it’s a start; perhaps some of you can do a better job. Please share if you are inspired, as I was, to write something about it… 🙂
I hope this link will take you to the picture, but I can’t be sure, since technology and I have a barely civil relationship… Fingers crossed…
They say the eyes are the window of the soul
projecting and reflecting
within and without
the givers and receivers of Light…
But the eyes only show what we want seen
being open or closed, curtained or transparent
prisms of leaded glass rainbows
or crystal mirrors of consciousness,
they only reveal our habitual living space…
But what lies beneath those most common places?
Hidden behind closed doors?
What mysteries are not revealed?
In the innermost sanctum of my soul?
For within me are dark niches that have never seen the light of day…
and frightful impulses I dare not say…
fantasies of magick and myth
and grandiose dreams I’d be ashamed to admit
and secrets even I have not unveiled…
And who is to say which is the “real-est” me?
And which is the deceit?
For the window only shows what’s visible
while the door hides what’s beneath…
