I thought we drawn in blue eyes?

Posted on: August 16, 2020

I thought we drawn in blue eyes?

Port of your blue sea eyes 

On the deck of your blue eyes rain

Audible vibrating lights.

 

On the port of your blue eyes

From a tiny open window

A view

Of faraway birds swarming,

Searching for yet undiscovered islands.

 

On the deck of your blue eyes

Summer snow is falling.

 

I am a kid jumping over rocks

Deeply inhaling the sea wind

And then returns a weary bird.

 

On the port of your blue eyes

I dream of oceans and navigation.

 

If I were a seafarer

If anyone lent me a boat

I would surely ease up my boat closer

To your blue sea eyes

Every sundown.
