The Mind’s Eye

Stare into these mystical eyes
Motion tween the shutter finds
Amid blinks of human passerbys
Visualize an empty mind

Open third skylight
Main being reclined
Breathing swell & then subsides

Calm frights at rest
There is no better
Feeling set open
You don’t remember
Time past life
This year, September
Homesickness
Can’t last
Going on
Forever

Captive on display
Prison echos shook
Rattling chains
Spectator looks
Tranquil, tased, electric hooks
Fish bowl, space drained, peace tamed, life took

Hours our minutes
Existence fades with sleep
Becoming accustomed
Keep living this dream

Photo Safari of Sorts

Posted in One Shoot with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 5, 2010 by dustus

Happy Sunday! I posted a picture prompt over at One Stop Poetry for today’s festivities. Yesterday, due in part to not having football tickets, I went on a photo safari of sorts… to my local zoo (Potter Park in Lansing). Enjoy the slide show. Cheers!
