Poet Laureate of Cobourg

Eye to Eye She Understands

To write the poem for the Eye to Eye International Film Festival, I began with the phrase ‘eye to eye’ and reflected on the themes of vision, agreement (’seeing eye to eye’), and the impact of story in different forms as we move through our day.

We are all story and story is everywhere when we give our attention to it. In this poem I also wanted to explore the power of film to transform us, to help us to see our world and our lives differently through the storytelling and the stories of others.
