Emerging eyes

Emerging eyes, John Lyons (oil on canvas)

Emerging eyes

Out of a tangle of coloured threads
           your smile emerges intact
your eyes peering into the future
           your beauty indestructible

This is how art transcends life
           stealing from its embroidered textures
and rendering them immortal
           the stuff of dreams as yet unfulfilled

a never-ending work in progress
           What I hoped to capture
is what moves your heart
           what sustains your deepest self

as you travel your chosen path
           knowing that love is indivisible
that in the come and go of days and nights
           love remains to the very end

John Lyons
