because I hate clichés

these eyes
will not have stars
but constellations
swimming in them
too many to count
all at once

but I will chart them
carefully
one by one

and name them all you

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    As I ready to head off to PP, #earworm. These eyes…

    Have fun mapping!

  2. So few words evoke such huge images concentrated on the Lilliputian surface of an eye. Scales are going crazy; I love it.
