Seeing Blindly - Poem by Obed Akuma

I see but blindly
I look but blindly see
Nay dimly see

I search but blindly see
I see but blindly search
Nay I search but see blindly

For love eludes me
When I see it away it glides
Nay when I search it away itself consummates

Away it glides every time it I experience
So intangible yet very tangible
Thus I keep seeing blindly

    Nice picture. Homer was a blind Poet. Yet he is the greatest. The same happens with love. A wonderful theme, dear Obed (responds to my poem 'Blind Fingers')
