What do we See when we Look?

What do we See when we Look?

by Elizabeth Challinor

I was expecting

A love story

Of enviable passion

In all its glory


We embark upon

A meandering ride

Through crystalline poetry

Of everyday lives

In the Georgian city of Kutaisi

Beauty shining in a smile

Football shimmering in the air

Children sparkling in their bodies

Dogs on noble errands

Birds protagonists in the park

People talking on White Bridge

And the relentless river

Flowing fiercely through

Kutaisi's everyday emotions 

Inspired in the film "What do we See when we Look at the Sky?" by Aleksandre Koberidze
