Golden Moons

Thin wavy red lines wander
across a large golden moon
ambling away from a blue
white nucleus at one side
of that luminous sphere.

Around it, behind it, the
pitch black of space highlights
this red lined golden orb.

Three more moons appear on
the computer screen as the
optometrist  brings up his
other photos of my eyes,
focused on the centre of
each eye, then from the sides.

For now there are no tiny
tears in the veins of my eyes
from the glucose gravel in
my bloodstream, flowing through
every part of me, even my eyes.

  1. Macular degeneration here. Also have incurred a vitreous detachment while in lockdown that has left me with a planetary system in my right eye. Doctor does not want to see anybody at this point in time so living with it. Oddly growing accustomed to it. —CC

      1. Yes – I am certainly concerned, but find I can live with it in what I am hoping is an interim, and not a norm, with respect to the health system. Would rather live here with my stash of millet, flour, beans, and assorted pickled and fermented products, and ride it out, rather than become a patient of any type, at this point in time. On the bright side, I am getting trimmer and more fit dodging and evading those polka-dotted and lightning-streaked items approaching from the right. 🙂
