One single impression: Spectacle


The Spectacle

I could not see
the signs in time
road signs that said
do this go there

Eye spectacle
need for the right
cost me hundreds
to pay the tab

A pitch dark night
I did not see
that sharp tree stem
my eye did poke

Eye bandage gone
need specs no more
the signs so clear
again I see

We don't notice how important the signs are until we can't see them and proceed forward. Nice poem.

We all need a good poke -- preferably not in the eye -- from time to time. Nicely done.
