Closing My Eyes Friday, June 9, 2023

I close my eyes often.

Beyond blinking I choose to close them to imagine what has been, is, and can be.

I used to close my eyes and wish to open them to a new world,

To see the light of hope in another life,

To see all of this through eyes which were not my own.

Recently when I close my eyes I imagine what can be — what I can be.

I don’t wish for another life.

I see that mine can be made better.

I open my eyes.
