How shall I use my eyes for the rest of the day?

I shall close them
I shall dream

My dreaming eyes
will show me certain sights

against my will
and along my will

I shall keep them
closed for the
rest of the day


somewhere not too busy, and
in waking moments
keep them closed

and listen to the wind,

to the leaves as
they are shaken
by the wind,

to the distant murmur
of all there is to see,

to the sea

the distant sea

as it circles

as it laps

as it pushes on
and pushes on

and only when

there is no light

nothing at all to see

will I open my eyes
