The Sphere

I only have these eyes 

from which to see the world

I only have these ears 

to witness beauty unfurl

These fingers type and try to make 

a picture of what I take in

This breath I can use to sigh 

in regret or savour the satin 

wonder of Ivy’s silken hair

look deep into their eyes and

puzzle at what is going on there 

I only have this life to live

the action is always here

It is solely in the choice I have

to see this as my magic sphere
