Shadow Without Sound

i do not reflect
in other's eyes
not like they reflect in mine.
That is why my friends
like to look
into my mirrors of simple vision.
For them its bliss
for they know
another is looking
refections of their importance.
To me i just a daunting endeavor
looking straight
ahead like a eye test
That no one will grade
except perhapses a single mouse
hidden within my consciousness
like a prize.
.
For my eyes never roam
after i find
that my refections is not looking back
from the round windows of their sight
for i am just a shadow
an undiscovered darkness
for even if i was blind
i would hear them
like a majestic ocean
in the seashells of my ears.
They would pass beyond me
because to them shadows
have no sound nor words--
but as a consoling wind
i would be gifted in such limitation.
i am allowed to lurk
under the branches of the trees
commingling as the afternoon shines
as others words fly like bumblebees
never mar the shade with notice..

THE SHADOWS OF THE MIND NOT MAKING A SOUND...They would pass beyond me
because to them shadows
have no sound nor words--
but as a consoling wind
i would be gifted in such limitation. THIS IS AWESOME TO READ ..HOW YOU CAPTURE ME WITH YOUR POEMS SO DEEP IN THOUGHTS OF YOUR MIND!! ~ LOVE ~ SHE

Dear Andrew-
I must agree fully with the below statement-
This piece just rolled through my mind and
thoughts like the breeze it was written upon-
It carried an irresistible urge to the reader
to absorb its direction-
Excellent Writing!
Best Wishes to You~
Peace~
James

Well, the somewhat unwritten rule that all the great poets of time were also great philosophers, you make it real. You surprise me all the time.
