Once Again, Seeing the Spring Festivities

04 May 2022  C. chou  1 min read.

Looking up,
I catch sight
Of those lanterns
Floating in the night sky.

Their bright glows,
Such a contrast
Against the deep blacks
Up above.

Contentment washes over me,
A smile
Comes to my lips.

As I watch them
Float so gracefully.
So beautiful.
So breathtaking.

I turn back
To face you.

Just in time to see
You smile back at me.

I take your hand,
Into mine,
Silently thanking thee,

For recovering
My ability to see.

This poem was inspired by an instrumental that was recommended to me by a YouTube suggestion.
