Slate And Silver - Poem by Barry Middleton

slate and silver
and cold ice blue
with the eye of god
blazing through

as a child I was taught
never to look
the answers hid
in a great dark book

if you look in his eye
you may go blind
that wasn't the answer
I set out to find

I never believe
what I cannot see
so I gazed on death
gazing back at me

the hot white sun
yet spared my sight
I knew it could lead
me into the light

slate and silver
and cold ice blue
the earth below
the sun shining through
