Your eyes are a window to my soul
Peering in them, I am made whole
Looking deeply into their darkness
Seeing love, you’re never heartless
Your eyes are a door into my mind
Help when I can’t the answers find
Emboldend with a serious wanting
Or sometimes an intense haunting
Your eyes are a book upon the shelf
Tender words for me and no one else
Enchanting me with a smile so wide
For the love in them you cannot hide
Your eyes are a map guiding me home
Reminding me always I’m never alone
And when your eyes do close in sleep
It’s me in your dreams they will keep©

Envy filled my soul, leaving me wanton and desolate
Never fulfilled and always wanting more and more
“Green with envy” seemed only to be superstition
But look into my eyes and you will see its impact
Self portrait, self loathing and self aware
Am I just an echo of my former self?

This is my “baby” Willow. She is a character, full of expression both vocally and physically. One of her best traits are her intense eyes, which are amazing hues of gold. I love that they match the brilliant tones in her fur. She can be difficult to capture as she is often in motion, so this is a treasure. You can view some of her more active and humorous poses here.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Eyes
“To photograph: it is to put on the same line of sight the head, the eye and the heart.”~Henri Cartier-Bresson
It seems poignant that the Daily Prompt: Eyes is our word, seeing as it is World Photo Day. And what is more visual than the perspectives we get through a camera lens? Being part of an artistic family I have always had a great appreciation for the art of photography. My father and one of my sisters both have thee eye to see what many do not. I love to take pictures, but I would not consider myself a photographer in the true sense of the word.
I love the ability to capture moments in time. As a mom, of course, I have millions of pictures of my kids! And, I even have scrapbooks that were such fun to make ages ago! Now, everything I have is mostly digital or on Facebook. Does anyone else have a ton of pictures they need to develop? See, I think this is the difference between thee art of photography and snapshots, developing.
“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”~Karl Lagerfeld
Have you ever really thought about why photography is so popular? I mean, we are all connected to our phones as though they are an appendage- snapping pics or selfies like our lives depended on it! We have Snapchat, Instagram and other social media outlets where we are documenting, at times by the moment, our days for others (even strangers) to view in images. The dictionary has expanded with words such as selfie; and we have made those who can take a good selfie into celebrities for that “ability” alone!
I can’t imagine a world without the beauty of photographs. How dull it would be to never see people, places and things from all over this world. To be unable to share in diverse images- whether beautiful, unique, sad and all thee emotions that can be reached through a picture. Life is too beautiful not to see, share and imagine through photography! So, get out you cameras (or phones) and keep showing your world through your eyes, the camera.
