Our eyes can be so many colours

But not purple or yellow or orange.

I wonder why

The colours of eyes

Are brown, blue or green

But nothing in-between.

How could you choose

Those limited hues?

And stranger again,

No two are the same.

I wrote this poem at my writing group a little bit ago.

I don’t like it very much, but I’m working to let go of perfectionism and still let things I create exist, even if they don’t feel polished. Perhaps I’ll come back to it some other time, perhaps not. But it’s a real thing I did and I’m glad I spent time writing.
