Eyes

For Poetics Tuesday at DVerse, we are talking about body image. I thought this was going to be reaare hard for me and was not thrilled about it, but the prompt is actually not what I expected: We only had to choose one physical attribute to write about and our feelings about it. I ended up writing something positive!


I cannot quite describe

The color of these eyes,

Inherited from you

And shared with my brother —

A bit of brown but mostly green-blue?

Unlike any other

The part of me that I like most,

Looks like an ocean, nearing its coast.
