Mind’s Eye Pictures II

What is it with words
that by cause or by guile
Serve day by day
to give reason to smile?

As it’s said that a picture
says more than a word
which often rings true
when emotion is stirred

So what if like here
there’s no picture to show?
What then for the reader
and how would they know?

It’s then that mind’s eye
with which readers see
what it is that the writer
would wish here to be

Something for emotion
that stirs in the soul
A happy though shared
to help make you whole


Beauty triggers


As I watched a golden sunset
fade with an ebbing tide
a solitary tear tricked from
the corner of my eye

Triggered by the beauty there
emotion found a way
to channel something of the joy
experienced this day
