The Blind Me

Rating: 5.0
every word he spoke
was dipped in conviction
every nuisance of the body
spoke of his resolve

he sat on the other side

the questions rolled
and he matched each with equal grit
said shakespeare remains
his all time favourite
no, he didn't say a word
about milton...
said he's marvelled
at the deepest perception
of life that he found
in the great bard and
quoted some pertinent lines
to validate his statement

at the end
i walked to the other side
to give him a warm hug

he reads only
the alphabet of two languages:
of touch and of hearing, you see

'i missed you in life, '
he gently whispered into my
deafening ears...

and walked away...

A very compassionate poem about the scholar, who can not see but is capable of seeing with mind.

From: Brett Ackerman To: Indira Babbellapati Date-Time: 8/31/2009 3: 48: 00 AM (GMT -6: 00) Subject: Re: the blind me --- Really insightful comprehension here, Indira. This doesn't sound like your usual verse composition, But I truly had to go over it a couple times just to get the feel of it from a distance. You've made a different choice of words fit a mind set that carries so much subtle information into your subject matter that is more give and take of the soul. I'm still left thinking and wondering where you found this variation of style.
