Your gorgeous eyes

Are almond brown

With a fiery glow

That melts the snow


Your sparkling stare

Penetrates the icy air

On a cool winter morning


Your eyes are innocent

Like twinkling stars

In the summer sky


The light intensifies all

And though I dream of Spring

It’ll soon be Fall

Dedicated to a boy named Todd who used to sit across from me in English class in high school.

Collage made using many Google images, my own colors from plants, and stickers; all in all – it took about three hours to create.
