Dec 22 : eyes

December 22 : Verse 22

Only 3 sleeps until Christmas!

I’m as excited as a kid today! Even though I don’t have anyone to celebrate Christmas with this year, and even though I didn’t get to see the once in a lifetime Christmas Star because the sky was too cloudy, I’m still as tickled and happy as can be!

I couldn’t believe my eyes! Just as though I had wished upon a star for snowflakes to fall, while I worked on the last details of the other writing assignment I tasked myself with – snowflakes captivated my eyes as they fell one by one from the sky.

After carefully eyeing more pages to be published, I finally submitted the final issue of Cadent Words’ features & highlights. Now my eyes are very tired, and I would very much like to close them and go to sleep, only to wake up to just two sleeps left until Christmas!

However, I will add a few more lines to today’s 22nd Verse while trying to keep my eyes and my mind focussed.

Needless to say, there’s much to be said and written about eyes. One of the most complex organs of the human body, it’s also one of the most used ones.

To see the world through a child’s eyes, the mind’s eye – these two have more to do with a state of mind and the imagination than to actually technically see through the eyes.

But what about dreams? Do you dream in colour or only hear sounds? I have had dreams where images were so vivid, it’s as though a movie was being broadcast on my closed eyelids. Then when I wake up and open my eyes, I often can’t remember what the dream was!

There have been many studies on dreams, and even more on eyes, but for today, I have to wrap-up this segment quickly and leave it somewhat incomplete and unfinished. After reading, writing, formatting, and editing since eight o’clock this morning, without even touching on half of everything that could be written about eyes – my eyes need to take a break and rest. So I’ll be playing some tunes for my auditory senses to be stimulated into a dance and fitness routine.
