Droplets of golden sun tickle green leaflets

Dancing to the sun’s melody over the tree.

From afar it’s a natural, but a closer look reveals

That in the dew drop I see both you and me.

So much is this beauty in disguise,

I turn and see nature’s bliss in your eyes.


In the dark hours of day, the city is still abuzz.

A still photo shows roads streaked with yellow, red and white.

In wee hours, full of life, it is hesitant to cease

But the city soon surrenders to the peace of night.

Under dark blankets, the silent city lies

I turn and see the city’s persistence in your eyes.


Somewhere out there beyond my sight is vastness;

A vastness both nil and all, dark and unfathomable.

For despite the galaxies and stars that adorn the universe’s robes

Meagre blue skies curtain its myriad of untold parables.

Mysterious it is, shielding what we cannot realize

I turn and see the sky’s humble secrecy in your eyes.


Whether nature prances in joy or cities live in medley,

Whether lightning strikes ablaze or the skies above lye in peace,

The beauty that surrounds me I shan’t ever perceive

Unless I see and realize its reflection in me.

I turn away to look at you and from within it strikes

That I will always see the world in your eyes.
