one would not see if not so desired

Image: One would not see
if not so desired (here)

the 12 given words:
watch outside window possum opening inclined 
share world nibble foraging almond change

to relate to the quotation
"Barn’s burnt down, now I can see the moon.”  - Mizuta Masahide

to watch peering outside  the window
was not there but now very apparent
the moon playing possum until recently
now no more hidden from view

dark clouds bough of the oak
even the tattered curtains
all could shut out the view

not having noticed it before
but an opening inclined
to let it share a whole new world
but only when the barriers were uprooted

every setback was a step nearer to a comeback
perhaps to nibble or better yet foraging
relentlessly through almond eyes

one could detect the change
one would not see if not so desired
but one would see if impassioned inside

Mish's at d'Verse Poetics :now I can see


  1. I like the way you describe the transition.

  2. Indeed so many aspects in life blind us. A profound write Hank


  3. Nice line: "every setback was a step nearer to a comeback"

  4. Maybe the knowledge of the moon is enough sometimes, but in the end we have to see it.
