Self-Portrait, Shadow lit

“You have a luminous voice, my dear”

husked the elderly gentleman

“but I am blind you see.

I want to picture the

beauty of countenance

that must accompany

those ethereal notes.”


demure and retiring by nature

in politeness she complied

“I am auras of sweetness and light

throbbing technicolor fantasy

possessed of midnight

magnetism bewitching

many a black hole.”


with the faintest flutter-kiss

nigh imperceptible

she vanishes


he swore he saw it all

  1. Sometimes, those who can physically see seem to see clearly than the rest of us, who are not visually impaired, because they see with their hearts and minds, while normal people like us, only see with our eyes!
