An Illusionary Support...

Prompt: Spectacles

An Illusionary Support...

Everything looks hazy
I remove and then clean
My spectacles....
and lo, it's all so
Beautifully visible
I put them on
And close my eyes
With the hope that
Those would be able to
Show me my inner space
A lot more clear
An illusionary support
To remove the illusions...


A Haiku too..

Costly spectacles
make her face look beautiful;
Yet she sees the same..



  1. Ah, to see more clearly inside. Great words.

  2. 'spectacles' and every thing about them are near and dear to my heart, as I have worn them since before the first grade - 55 yrs...and mine always seem dirty and uncomfortable, yet having better sight is a gift....the haiku was great....

  3. illusionary support to remove illusions.. great thought

  4. Nice rational here, Ramesh. I had to wash my $3.00 reading glasses today. I could see a lot better but I suppose it didn't make me look any better either.

  5. Hello there, I found your site by way of Google at the same time as looking for a related topic, your site got here up, it seems to be great. I’ve bookmarked to my favourites|added to bookmarks.

  6. I really enjoyed reading your poem Ramesh. How true about how our perspectives can change, our vision of the world...very nice.

  7. Often closing our eyes helps us see the world more clearly. I enjoyed both poems. Nicely written Ramesh.

  8. I just love that first poem. Truly we need to close our eyes in order to see things more clearly.
