Sometimes I get blurry vision

in the eyes of my head

when I've seen to much too soon

in the eyes of my mind

Outsight, it seems, is best glimpsed carefully

even held at bay for awhile

before decoding visions into insight

Pride, for example, or shame

is best swallowed slowly

else stress if not a stomach ache

may be anticipated

Still, seeing and insight 

are the only keys I've found

for unlocking the gate to Eden here

even before grander challenges

of mustering courage essential

for becoming as a little child
