Balintataw – (n.) The pupil of the eye
Oh, interesting wordplay of “I” and “eye”. I feel that there is more to this haiku. That question reminded me of saddening truth I’ve come to realize: We are losing in touch of what we once were.
Cleverly done, D.

Thank you Maria. I agree, we are losing touch with our roots and ancestral origins. Thanks again for reading and your kind words.
You’re welcome D. I enjoyed it ☺️
ooooh. intriguing and enchanting!! great take!
Thank you Rosema. Your kind words are appreciated.
you are most welcome, i am glad you are on board because your pieces are always a delight to read! 😀
Thank you Rosema. The challenge is fantastic. It is pushing me to create things on a daily basis. More importantly, I am meeting wonderful and talented people.
playing with “I” and “eye”, that’s brilliantly creative! Awesome job, Davy 😀
This is nice. I especially like the image. I collect eyes. Weird hobby, I know. Just the images, though, not real ones. I also like the inclusion of forefathers. Family history has been my obsession since I was a young teenager. It isn’t just us looking out from our eyes. They are still in there, going forward with us.
Thank you Suzanne. There is so much to be found in the eye. Your paintings bring out many emotions they express.
You’re welcome, Davy. Thank you, too. Have a blessed day.
This is an interesting take on the word. You are a very creative person.
Thank you David. I am humbled by those kind words.
