Poetry 2018 Longlist, Shivani Dua

Eyes

You are an insight into the spectacle of Nature
Which is fashioned by the Great Creator,
You are like a window through which I see the cosmos
Enriched with cactus pricks and crimson of a rose,
You glisten with happiness in my happy moments
And well up with tears in my laments,
You deserve to be tended with care
Your company takes me away from despair,
I can’t even dream of a life without you
I am not flattering, it is true,
I can see through you the ebb and flow of a rill
Flowing from the high hill,
You help me in enjoying the sight of lush greenery and swaying crops
And the crystal clear falling rain drops,
You help me to see the bright moonlight
And sometimes draw my attention to the blind’s plight,
It is impossible to lead life without eyes
But the blind does it with tears and sighs,
I pray to the Great Creator
May no one be devoid of the sights of beautiful Nature,
My eyes are my treasure
Whose worth I can’t measure.
