Eyes carve first perceptions

with unconscious fervour

wilful imaginings

prejudicial clarity

sculpting senses

defining smiles

waning frowns

enticing judgments

coaxing hope

alluring adventures

iced intimacies

 

With bated breath

we entwine our lives

around what we see

foolishly or wise

upon baited hooks

pleasing to the eye

essential for the heart

rhythmic to our bodies

and we love.
