Through Our Eyes


is the wind

under our wings.


doesn’t tell us

where to fly.

Creator just allows the wind

we can use

under our wings

to fly.

Then Creator

enjoys the new sights

through our eyes.

Reminds me of my current favorite quote

“The eye by which I see God

is the eye by which God sees me.”

Meister Eckart von Hockeim

  1. I just filmed an artist high above the Chama River valley in northern New Mexico. She had just finished a piece called Inherit the Wind (a sculpture of a mantling Red Tail Hawk). I filmed her doing Qi Gong above the valley, as though she IS that hawk flying and seeing with its hawk eye all below. Your poem reminds me of this scene.
