An Eye Too Keen?

by Venkat

to find what isn’t present
without knowing what is so
is an eye too critical

to see what isn’t present
without knowing what is so
is an eye too prying

to think what isn’t present
without knowing what is so
is an eye too presuming

to imagine what isn’t present
without knowing what is so
is an eye too fantasising

to love what isn’t present
without knowing what is so
is an eye too wishful

to hold what isn’t present
without knowing what is so
is an eye too greedy

to aim at what isn’t present
without knowing what is so
is an eye too blind

  1. You are like an old man weaving, patterns that flow into infinity . . .

    • 🙂 You know better of being old! Yes there is no end to patterns. Some are obvious but many are not so. Some appear as we attempt to see, some when we close our eyes. Some can be made, some already so but to be discovered. Some need the strings to be pulled while some weave themselves in quiet waters!!!

  2. I have to read your poems a couple of times slowly to take in what wisdom is there. It makes for some thoughtful reflections on what initially seems a simple statement but holds so much more. Lovely work.

If you enjoyed the poem. please leave a comment.
