The Eye Of Light - Poem by Harumi Taniguchi

Give me the sun, shaft of light,
Run across the desert sand.
The flare seen, burning fire
Burning deep, cat's agate eyes.

Will the burning, bright light
Give life and hold the eye?
Can the blind see the light?
Will it heal the beastly pain, be free?

Light the torch, shaft of life
Hold it high!
Open wide the agate eye.
Race across the desert sand,
Give each one a burning eye!
