my eyes were hungry

My eyes were hungry
as they searched the dark skies
and countrysides
with the innocent joy
and eagerness
of a pilgrim
new in the holy land

my eyes were hungry
sharing the low groans and growls
of my churning stomach
searching for food
both body and soul

my eyes were hungry
for vision.
what's out there in the darkness?
what's out there beyond the realm of my knowledge
or even my imagination
that I have yet to learn?

my eyes grow ravenous
as they desperately seek
hope hidden in the hills.
