' ' ' ' ' Eyes Do More Than See(For The Onelia Begetter Of This Ensuing Poem) - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

Dreams wander
from human to human

from Ireland
to Bulgaria

from an anywhere
to the somewhere

of everywhere

arriving in different heads
at the same time

so that the beings
whether they be human or not

(see the haystack dream of the barn
dreaming of a large harvest moon)

(see the forgotten doll
dream of her lost child)

all seem
to dream

the same dream.

(you must understand)
do more than see

eyes dream

of what the heart

...already knows.


For the lovely lady who is so 'Eye-rich' at heart and who writes the most 'laughely' poetry. A thank you poem for the gift of your poetry.

    It's true. You can make a poem from nothing. This is a beautiful gift.

    Oh this is lovely...it always amazes me how you can write a poem from such a little scrap of something that catches your eye. Isn't there an Asminov story called EYES DO MORE THAN SEE in which now two disembodied energies flee through an eternal universe remembering a time when they were flesh and blood and there was human love and....they create it again...this mental image and it gets to the sadness that eyes do more than see...they cry. Seems so long ago when I read that as a kid and it always stayed me...frighteningly beautiful and sorta scary. Surely your title was also to allude to this...yes...please tell me yes? Yes!

    love Debbie of Debs
