Blind Love - Poem by Guillermo Veloso

The poetry of a blind man
Is not metered
In contrast hue or color
It is textured
In smell
In sound
In feel
A light finger upon the breast of a lover
An epic is forged
On the shallow breath
Of a tender sigh
Of his unseen lover
And verses fall like rain

    love-
    incessant stream of verse river,
    crystal water falling verse
    and spreading over all the world blindly!

    I second Sonya's 'wow'- that such a deceptively simple thing can cut straight to the heart of the matter and leave you in complete awe; wow is the only thing comes to mind, truly..(smile) (Report)Reply
