She saw it all so simply then
through eyes of natural wonder.
The sun, oh warmth divine,
tingling on each particle of skin;
entering and changing everything,
even as a cool wind blew itself
into and through her soul.
The eyes of nature opened
and she became the glad recipient
of this life of all existence.
The scent of lilacs wafted through
within a breath now deeply taken;
each tiny flower, a star that streamed
through everything within itself alone.
People passed, unknowing in
their glance -
yet too, in some way mesmerized
by just the sight of wisdom in her eyes;
adorning too, an ambiance that seemed
to come from everywhere.
They knew her not, yet thought perhaps
they recognized some long forgotten
piece of self they used to know -
for these eyes of nature saw them too.
Newly awakened, yet ever alert,
she saw it all so clearly then,
within a moment of eternal clarity;
while pen in hand, she sought to speak
the truth of this reality of life –
for she saw it all so simply then
within the endless facets of all eyes...
