My Morning Poem!

 

Ode to Eyelashes

 

taken for granted, they are,

until, chemo takes them away,

lash by lash,

upper and lower,

slowly thinning,

until, one day,  they are gone.

Eyes gaze as puddles then,

bare,

no grasses surrounding,

the wake of the pond.

 

The lashes

of the whip

are gone, too,

only kindness

for what comes along,

no filtering,

of the view.


I lashes lift,

like puddles,

in the sun.
