On seeing …

I wonder

if I could no longer see

how would beauty

be revealed ..

if in a world of darkness

I was sealed,

lost in a landscape unseen ..

would the wind-tossed waves

embracing the shore

sound to me aquamarine?

Like a butterfly

in the summer air

attracted to the presence

of a flower I chose,

would I perceive the essence

of a rose

in its honeyed nectar?

Could a moonbeam’s

laser- light

be felt with a moth-wing touch?

And would a clear and frosty night

illuminate with stars my skin

and turn my night to day within?

Would the taste

of a sun-ripe peach

convey summer on my tongue,

flooding my senses

each by each?

And would I be more sensitive

to the beauty of life

I walk among ? … .

Reticent .. but I hope my poetry speaks for me .. Favourite quotation .. ' Uttering a word is like striking a note on the keyboard of the imagination.' Ludwig Wittgenstein
