Green Eyes

When I was a teacher and taught the poetry unit, we helped the kids learn to see with poets' eyes. To see with poets' eyes meant that:

  • if you looked at a spiral seashell, you might see a princess's tower
  • if you looked at a ladybug, you might see her entire life cycle
  • if you looked at a swordfish, you might see a gallant knight
  • if you looked at a flower laden with dew, you might see a tear
Similarly, if you see with green eyes, you might see how trash can be renewed with a little ingenuity.
