Eastwards - Poem by Valerie Dohren

At the start of each day, turn your eyes eastwards
and you will see the sky slowly open up her heart
to reveal a mighty dazzling orb, shimmering in the
morning mist.

Then look into your own heart to see if you can catch
a glimpse of its reflection there. If you can, then
you have, for a brief moment, touched eternity.

If you don`t see it, then close your eyes and keep
trying so that one day you surely will, and its beauty
will be so great that you will never ever turn away.

    I turn my eyes eastwards at the dawn to look at the pleasant sun, I turn my eyes eastwards at noon to avoid the burning sun, I turn my eyes east wards at the dusk to look at the romantic twilight truly, throughout the night my eyes remain starring and waiting a lovely dawn. (Report) Reply
