To see clearly

Mindy's beautiful ring. Nags Head, NC ~ squam by the sea

She had to look through
Someone else's eyes to see clearly
She needed them to reflect
Back what they saw

She did not see it in her
She did not even know it was their

It was the vision of another
That opened her up to herself

Without them looking
She never would have
Saw it
Without their eyes
Hers would still be closed

Beautifully said and I know exactly how you feel. I wrote a poem recently and the first line went "To be in community, to see myself in their faces"

Next year I would love to attend Squam by the Sea it seemed magical.
So happy to hear you saw the true you.
