perspective - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Beauty I came to
see, was beautiful only
because he said 'twas.
When I see the world
I see to often through eyes
that are not my own.
~~ One of My own Haiku pairs.
Eyes. Colour. Hair. Colour. That is mostly always my first perspective for people. Always has been. Still is. The rest comes later but I suppose there is something about the eyes that, for every person I see, says it all.
The first eyes I remember were brown. And Big. And Brilliant. And Beautiful. My mother’s.
Also I suppose this might be one of the reasons for my singular perspective because that is all I remember of her. The eyes. So for every person I see I study the eyes looking for that sparkle I saw in hers. I never did experience that same warm fuzzy feeling looking into any eyes but hers; which was pretty strong a feeling for having been a few days of age. I always liked the fact that at least I have that one piece of her that nobody else ever did.
