"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly,
what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

~Antoine de Saint-Exupery

What a beautiful photo. Love the contrast and the hypnotic eyes.

A million times have I been mislead by my eyes. Friends, lovers, and co-workers have all let me down because of my foolish tendency to judge with my eyes instead of my heart!!!

I love her eyes. She seems mischevious and full of life. It's like she's telling the photographer to hurry up, she wants to get on with it.
I think the eyes tell everything.

stunning image! if the eyes are the windows to the soul, then this girl has got it! at least by what my eyes see.

Sarah Copeland said...

When you look into
those deep pools of blue
can you see the light
that is her soul's invite
to say hello and get to know
the curiosity hidden below?

When you look into
those deep pools of blue
can you see the life
waiting to end the strife,
waiting to break free
and say, hey this is me.

When you look into
those deep pools of blue
make them sing, make them ring
with a smile shared in passing.
Don't be shy, those eyes
never judge on outside lies.

Poem by Therese L. Broderick


They do.
But differently, just as no two

hats will shade a girl's face
in the same way.

See how black lines and smudges
are almost shutting

the eye on the left
(her right), and yet

the eye on the right
(her left)is washing to white.

Just watch for a single wink
to fit that cowgirl rim.

This quote makes me think of our "gut" instinct. When what our eyes see competes with what our heart feels. I guess it's like intuition. We don't want to believe that our eyes are deceiving us.

My laughing eyes inspire prose,
My happy soul they oft expose,
To know my essence, eyes you chose.
Just wait until you see my nose!
