Love and Seeing

July 16, 2015 life

Each pair of eyes
sees a world
to the beholder.

To love another being
is to borrow their eyes,
to see the universe
they live in,
at the same time
as our own.

Each one is a sliver
of the greater Whole,
beyond what any one
can see.

The more we love,
the more these glimpses
stretch our boundaries,
more and more
of What Is.
