POEMS: “Magic Eye” by Trina Graves


“Magic Eye”


It was the latest craze in the 90’s going around
Looking at pictures and what could be found
Inside these pictures was another to see
Hidden from view and apparently in 3D

I tried to see what it was all about
I couldn’t see anything so began to doubt
That anything was actually there at all
So I got a big picture to put on my wall

Patterns, shapes of many colours and size
Covered the picture before my eyes
I stared at it umpteen times a day
But nothing appeared in anyway

I tried to look as the instructions told
Relaxing the eyes, no focus to hold
Looking through the picture was described
I began to think the instructions lied

But other people said they could see
Objects appear, like a bird or a tree
I continued to look determined to find
But my magic eye just stayed blind

Giving up hope that I’d ever get to see
On day I glanced, not bothered and lazily
Suddenly on one side a shape appeared
I was so surprised, I could have cheered

I looked at the shape, but it was gone
Now I knew I could do it, I continued on
Relaxing my eyes and looking through
That was all I ever really needed to do

It didn’t take long to see the whole thing
An aeroplane in 3D with extended wing
Coming out of the picture towards me
I was elated that at last I could now see

After that first time it was easily achieved
Seeing the aeroplane, I now believed
I could do it, so it was easily done
Picture within picture was such fun

Now I could see with my magic eyes
I sought out pictures and showed other guys
But the thought that most stuck with me
Was what else is there we do not see

The point of all this I’ll come to now
Because over the years I wondered how
Some people can see the non-physical
A gift from Spirit I believe is so magical

Becoming interested in the Spiritual side
I’d wanted to see auras and so I tried
But nothing happened, I could not see
I guessed it just was not meant to be

The magic eye pictures showed me how
To unfocus my eyes to see differently now
So I tried this new way, looking at my hand
Although my gaze on it, did not land

Without success, I tried looking at a tree
Outside the window and it seemed to me
Around the leaves there was a slight glow
I could see even though the wind did blow

By relaxing my eyes and focus I knew I could
See the energy from plants, I understood
The energy was always there, not in view
If the magic eye is not looked through

Eventually I got to see the light
Around my hand, an amazing sight
But over the years, time moved on
I didn’t practice this, had it gone?

A few days ago I gave it a try
Looking at my hand held up high
And around it I could see a light hue
A glowing beautiful shade of blue

All who are blessed with the gift of sight
Have the ability to see the light
Around living things, when they try
To use their own magic eye

To find out the message behind this poem please visit Trina’s site at:



I had a hard time seeing the 3D image here at first. I got frustrated but I followed some instructions: First put the screen really close to your face, your nose almost touching it, let your vision totally get lost in the blurr of colors. Stay there for a few minutes, focus on the top age and center and try to look at the background colors. Then slowly, move the screen away from your eyes, at one moment, suddenly a 3D screen will jump out.

If you discover what it is, please don’t write it here in the comments, send me a contact message, so others get a chance to play this game, to see how our eyes can be deceiving, and how many things maybe out there that we just don’t see, because we are all so used to only looking from one perspective at things! It’s a habit and it limits our vision and understanding! This is a great exercise to open up to new ways of looking at things and revealing the magic behind the veils!!!

Have fun and enjoy! Trina and me would love to hear your experiences!
