Sunglasses

The glare can be intense and sunglasses tempting;

but, I resist protecting my eyes in favor

of enduring the blinding brightness of insight.

 

In due course, sunglasses do serve a good purpose;

but, put on too early they hurt more than they help

for they shield the eyes from absorbing the true light.

 

When donned correctly sunglasses safeguard vision,

allowing the perceiver to enjoy the view

without exposing the wearer to pupil’s plight

 

So sunglasses can help but intent is the key,

they’re not protection from the ultraviolet rays,

but rather, to engage harmony’s bright delight

 

I wear sunglasses basking in radiant joy,

affording the windows of the soul a safe view

and giving me the confidence of graceful sight.

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
