I think today's poem requires little in the way of explanation.
When the idea came to me and I tried to capture it on paper, I struggled to squeeze as much into eight short lines as I possibly could.
I was operating then under the mistaken impression that Capper's ... where I was thinking I might submit it ... only published eight-line poems.
I believe, however, that I may have succeeded in conveying my central message: The world does take on a new aspect when we view it with "new eyes."
Oh, if we could just manage to maintain that perspective.
and yet the same
in all details.
Could it be that
(originally published in Capper's)
Today's word: transformation
