5. Your hazel green eyes 1/22/2010

Your hazel green eyes

Your hazel green eyes
Are like woods on a warm spring day
When leaves have just unfolded
And slender branches thick with sap
Bend under the weight of songfest birds.
I look into your eyes and see
A timeless world of sun and breezes,
Of shade and dappled love,
As I gaze from my sunlit doorway.

[Hata Bildir]
