What visions hold fast of the eyes

looking within?  The inward glance.

The casual unprovoked sense of probing

about like a child seeking a lost toy.

What comes before us as we search?

A half memory faded like leaves

Of autumn. Names without faces and

faces without names.  Places by the

ocean or shadows from mountains.

Looking deep cuts the thoughts

into parts where the good outlasts

the past as we age within a sense

of well being.
