When I close my eyes

When I close my eyes
The world around me closes
Like the closed leaves of a book
Bright luminous shapes flash before me
And my mind draws pictures
Against the dark shadows of my eyelids
Then they fade away
Leaving my mind blank


The Blank Mind courtesy Loretta Crossley, Std 2, 1965, Bayfield Primary
