not to doubt but eyes could kill

Image: Innocence belie the wild (here)

attractive blue eyes rightfully at birth
acclaimed as the most beautiful therein
of eternal youth with the right to unearth
bestowed to groups of beauty with brains

Spanish eyes could heighten the desire
a peaceful calm on an undisturbed surface
of an expanse of water on a day so clear 
portent truthful and not likely debased
centrally befitting the strength of purpose
sensuous with sincerity to gracefully fulfill
bewitching almond pair aligning its worth
blessed be not to doubt but eyes could kill 

Mish at d'Verse Poetics - look into my eyes


  1. We're always trying to unlock the mystery behind the eyes.

  2. If any eyes could kill, a cat's eyes could...

  3. Cats eyes leave too much to be discerned but I love those pools of blue.

  4. Oh, this is so beautiful and eloquent. It describes cat eyes perfectly, gracefully; so much in those eyes to swim in, so much to see in their hearts, their souls. Eyes indeed kill. What a powerful and beautiful poem, Hank. It's an honor, as always, to read your work.

  5. It's amazing how much those eyes are waiting for their first kill.

  6. Lovely photo, great verse Hank. Yes, a cat's eyes are always a warning.


  7. If we could only get beyond the seduction of eyes. This is beautiful!

  8. “Bewitching almond pair”

    Lovely description for the mysterious eyes of a cat.
