Cleansing Lenses (next day repost)

Before I put my glasses on…

I wipe them with a special

cloth that frees them of specks.

I am now ready for what’s ahead,

prepared for the epiphanies

and aware of possibilities.

My glasses shield the windows of my soul,

protecting and obfuscating

what I see and how I am seen.

How I see is what I see:

peering intently with discernment,

glancing lightly with abandon.

After a while, I must wipe them again…

to see clearly I take them off

and review what I just saw.

My glasses focus me

I hear with my eyes

I see with my ears

I hug with my heart
