Blindness, a temporary lapse in judgement.
We enter the courtyard effortlessly.
It is filled with flowers, a simple, distinct fountain, and
a fire pit.
As deemed by an age-old decree, we sip from our wine
and we eat our cheese.
Meanwhile the dancers dance,
the birds sing, and
blue-white flames embrace the ever glowing embers.
The fountain reflects the world
through the fragmentation of pennies, nickels, and an occasional dime.
These material possessions can be both the rise
Of which, both are deemed a necessity.
