Eyes With Power

Like Midas with
His golden touch
Who transformed
Everything to gold,
The power in
Your eyes reshape
The world to fit
In beauty’s mold.

But unlike Midas
Who was cursed
With wealth that he
Cannot control,
So blessed are those
With eyes to see
That beauty lies
Within the soul.

  2. ” Blessed are those who are immersed in beauty, greed will not destroy.” Wonderful! ❀

  3. A different take on being altruistic, or an optimist. I wish I had eyes that could only see the beauty of the world. Too much pain and ugliness these days. Still, I get to read beautiful words, like yours, and dream……

    1. Where there is the greatest suffering, I believe the seeds have been sown for tremendous beauty, for what could be more beautiful than the triumph of the spirit over immeasurable pain and sorrow?

      1. Like the phoenix, perhaps. But the seeds don’t always take root.

        1. Very true, and it is indeed tragic when seeds don’t root. But the potential is there in the human spirit.

    Honestly. ..I am really beginning to LOVE reading you.

    “The power in
    Your eyes reshape
    The world to fit
    In beauty’s mold.”

    I mean.

  13. Always the optomist. Sometimes, I wish I could see the world like that. I do appreciate the beauty I find. Like your poems.

    1. I am not always optimistic. I can be quite pessimistic/realistic. However, being optimistic is better for motivational drive. πŸ™‚

      1. It works for you. I always feel sappy or dishonest if I try to write overly optimisticly.

  14. Nicely said! Shantanu inspires many!
