Creativity Day 22: Blind


What We Missed

The seeing see only this world
-Franz Wright


purple columbines
loveable darkness
mess around growing
elephantdung
what we missed sounded like a fast car
felt like the softest cotton dress
tasted like sleeping on a couch
smelled like burned hair
bloody lips
walking in circles
alpenglow
what we missed sounded like angry magpies
felt like feet on the ground
tasted like mountain sky
smelled like dancing barefoot
ribbons
violin strings
fountain pen
what we missed sounded like a movie soundtrack
felt like rings that don’t fit
tasted like leaving a day early
to avoid the farewell
smelled like following blindly

what we missed was easy to love

what we missed was the not logical
was the heartical
