Daily Prompt: Omniscient eye

Englepip's World


Your eye catches mine

And in an instant I am drawn

To your unblinking stare

Which digs deep into

My soul.

That eye drills

Into my very being

And holds me

To account.

Who could surmise

That such innocence

Was so omniscient.

I was travelling by bus when this child – no more than 18 months and sitting on its mother’s knee in front me, captured my attention, staring unblinking into my own eye. Seemingly the toddler could see my very thoughts. It was an eerie experience which I have remembered for years. I had to look away to break the spell. The title in the daily prompts brought it all back to me, now.

  3. Charlie, beautiful post! Reminds me—I was on Google Docs yesterday and saw a video about this guy whose daughter had an eye disease and he went online and found a video about how to make her a new eye. It was so inspiring.
