An Anatomy Lesson

I can't seem to stop writing poetry or reading poetry. I think it is safe to say I love poetry and I love sharing great poetry with others.


The skin a seat, a throne, that holds our touch.

An epiblast the secret of dermis,

an embryo that's common among us,

the slightest touch upon our skin says much.

The mighty physics behind our eye's lens.

Incredible mobility of eye,

a tear to always follow our goodbye,

a rainbow from the light show refractions.

We are the muscle cell to move our frame,

the energy that lies within synapse

that pilots this complicated machine.

A model we build that's never the same.

While learning quiet during preschool naps

or living each day in daily routine.

Nice, kinda reminds me of the old song "Dem Bones" except that it's much prettier.

I love this poem, Jamie. It encapsulates the wonderful make-up of our bodies, especially the bit about the eyes (but then my Dad was an optometrist so that appeals greatly).


Louise Powles from Norfolk, England on April 23, 2018:

That's an interesting poem. Nice perspective about the look on anatomy.
