Clarity

I see clearly.
I see blossom.
I see ripples in leaves.
I see movement in trees.
I see the definition of petals.
I almost see green chlorophyll 
pulsing through vein and stem.
I see the black and white gloss
of the handsome magpie
by the garden gate.

It’s 22nd April, the day after my first eye op and, although the sight in my right eye is clear for distance now I’ve taken the eye shield off, I’m having trouble reading and working on the computer, so I’ve kept today’s poem simple. We are writing poems that use repetition of a sound, a word, a phrase, or an image, or any combination of things.

    1. I’m very lucky to live in a very green, quiet part of England, where everything goes slowly and I can breathe. I would love to see Delhi, but I will have to be satisfied with watching travel shows and movies.

  1. An “I see” poem, good news. I can’t remember much about my surgery but after it is over “I SEE SO GOOD.” I remember wearing the patch three days while sleeping, I remember all the meds I took. My med routine hadn’t totally finished before I had started again with the other eye.
    Best wishes for you, for this eye, and for the other eye. That’s my prayer too, and for the medical folk who ‘doctor’ you up.
