-For Papa

Your moon-eyed gaze claims beauty anew

Reminding emerald shooting stars of their start.

In vibrant hues, the world is you.

Graphite woods blush at your step, they whisper and admit

They’ve never expected such unusual heart

Your moon-eyed gaze claims beauty anew

On inky sunset sands you stood, you lit

Beams of gold from fingertips oceans could not chart

In vibrant hues, the world is you

Lemon gingham napkins, honeysuckles, tulips sit

In sleepy windowsills, you call them sweetheart

Your moon-eyed gaze claims beauty anew

Sweet melodies dance from the depths of your orchestra pit

Proof that this life has no need nor capacity for restarts

In vibrant hues, the world is you

The earth’s simplicities and delicacies you intertwine, you knit

Together, unintentionally rendering the mundane to art.

Your moon-eyed gaze claims beauty anew

In vibrant hues, the world is you
