You are now entering the world of my thoughts.

This blog is my diary of works in progress. The only way a writer can improve upon her skill is to practice, practice and practice some more. Here, in this place of quiet peace, I pen to paper my thoughts and creativity. Welcome to my world.

Look into My Eyes

I am happy that my writing group has started up again. I missed the last session and probably would have missed this week's session had it not been for technology (Go Skype!) I was able to attend via skype. Our writing exercise this week was to write about a part of the body. I chose the eye. Below is what I did for the exercise.  Let's just say it was an 'eye-opener' for me!

Look into My Eyes

They say that 'the eye is the window to your soul.'
But can you really know my secrets 
by looking into my eyes?

What do my eyes tell you
when they are filled with tears?

Is it sadness you see,
pent up frustrations, or fears?

What do my eyes tell you
when they rage with fire?

Is it anger you see,
my strong will, passions or desire?

What do my eyes tell you
when they are filled with light?

Is it happiness you see,
or a faith that leads to a path that's right?

My eyes may say many things 
but unless you have the key,
my soul remains locked
for only God and me.

Now, it is your turn. Choose a part of the body and write. :)
