Looking up at life,
Watching time fly by:
Eyes fixed on the future.
A simple moment stops you,
Surrounds you like a home:
Eyes fixed on the now.
Feelings. Senses. Sight. Smell. Contour.
Simple things,
Embedded in your core:
Eyes fixed on the past.
Memories are eyes in all three places.


Aubrie Smith

This poem is really lovely. The title caught my attention, and the poem expresses a sentiment without being overdone. Its simplicity is what makes it work. Great job, and keep writing!
