By Nupur Kudapkar 

poets compare blue eyes to the sea 

but yours are as distinct as every star in the night sky

filled with galaxies, suns, and many moons 

like kaleidoscopes, some might say 

twisting and turning into beautiful shapes 

and when they hit the light 

even zeus stops his duties to look at their beauty 

your eyes are like kaleidoscopes 

that are captivating and magical 

so when you look at me 

i can’t help but become mesmerized

and in the silence, as i look into them, i whisper 

i’m so glad i get to call you mine
