Tunnels

Things that I missed,
like the warriors eyes
in the pacifist
or
the Sequoia in
the standing of a child.

Seldom as it seems
unlike recurring dreams
that I know by heart,
I miss the most patently
obvious, while being
blatantly oblivious
to the world about me.

see what I see
and it is not very
much.
