Some days the poetry
Within the world around me,
Is hidden by a thick armor
My eyes cannot pierce.
Some days I can see through
The surface and into the
Living soul of all things;
The leaf, the rock, the people.
On those days I look at the woman beside me
I see through her flesh, her bones
And I see etched upon her heart
Another mans name.
Those are the days when I write about
How the world pierces me.

Dan, was going through Kingfisher's favorites list and this title invited me to read what you'd read. The emotion expressed here is what I've often felt. Bravo!!!
