Poetry from within

Vision Expressed

Sonnet Form

Refracted light may change one’s point of view

When clarity is sought amongst the blind

Where vision fails and cataracts ensue

‘Tis time for us to concentrate the mind

Tho’ seeing is believing, yet for some

Who look beyond the realm of all that’s known

A leap of Faith may sometimes overcome

When glimpsing that so very rarely shown

Pray shun the deeds of devil in disguise

When obfuscation clouds what's meant to be

The truth of which He set before our eyes

Revealed to all who have such sight to see

Corrective lens allows us to observe

Should doubts creep in to test our optic nerve

Richard Gildea
