EINSTEIN’S EYES

 

EINSTEIN’S EYES

Einstein could see

the fundamental meaning

when others could only see numbers.

He could see when the logic did not fit.

His unseen sense knew

what lay beneath.

Sometimes I look at a garden

or the sun shining on asphalt

or into a child’s deep eyes

And wish I, like Einstein,

could see the sublime connection,

the grand web,

and capture the verse

to make it manifest.

Let’s see…

if time is not constant

and I am impermanent,

am I only here

relative to another moving reality

that passes through my presence

only sensed by those,

who, like Einstein,

can peer beyond his mortality

to see the poem

which lies unseen

to those who confidently

keep their eye

only on the obvious?
