Closed Eyes

(Dedicated with gratitude to Sam Harris and The Waking up app team)

There is so much to witness,

Behind closed eyes.

I never knew to look,

But now I perceive,

The changing images,

And shifts of light and darkness.

A world I never knew,

Rich in mystery,

Never realized.

I used it,

as a shield to not be,

Not feel,

To escape.

Now, the veil vanished,

I appreciate,

A richness that leaves me in awe,

Of all I did not see.
