Best Poem of Mike Tonkin

A Look, Two Eyes

A look. Two eyes
Filled with yearning.
A look. Two eyes
Gently burning
Into mine.
Such warmth,
Such tenderness
Was in those eyes,
it was as if the trembling sky
Looked on me.
A look. Two eyes
Searching and discerning in mine
A gaze returning, the tenderness
And lit with such intensity
As to make her tremble like the sky.
A look. Two eyes.
Holding my world,
Causing me to unfold
From within myself
And pour out through my eyes
My love for her.

Read the full of A Look, Two Eyes


I had a stroke,
One minute I was
Michael J Tonkin,
The next I was
When I finally
Regained conciousness,
I couldn't say a word
I could think words
