Excerpts From My Open Eye

Honored guests

Welcome forth

This exhibition

Collected thoughts

Snippets from time

Population inauguration

Lost conversations

Equal terse and just

Illusions merely

Nouns and verbs


Captured words

Engagements traced

Gathered touch and sight

Waking voices


Kaleidoscope of coloring

Interpretations vast

Surroundings cast



Invisible, quite still possible

For only as this eye can see

Mystical in opening

Perceptive quite

‘Tis happening

Passing frames

Events unfolding

Captured seconds

Spaces closing


How time develops

Devotion focused

Flashes of brilliance


Or realizations



Lucid thoughts

Or lucid dreams

Truth exposed

Yet hidden not

This open eye to wider sight

A gallery

Of true cognition

No conditions


Forth translated

Definitive or divination

Ample questions


Distant measures





Universal integration

Pensive capability

Boldly held in presentation


Or imagination


The Third Eye

Each of us has a third eye, located in the center of our forehead, which when opened, elevates our perception of the world around us, and opens an endless stream of possibilities. This poem approaches this vast world of knowledge as an, open to the public, exhibition; one which gives the visitor a taste of the possibilities that can be discovered inside.

I write about everything and sometimes nothing at all. I'm fascinated by old things, rusty things, abandoned places, or anywhere that a secret might be unearthed. I'm passionate about history and many of my pieces are anchored in one concept of time or another. I've always been a writer, dating back to my youth, but the last decade has been a time of growth for me. I'm continually pushing the limitations of vocabulary, syntax, and descriptive phrasing.
