Eye Talk


              When you’re quiet like this,

                             it’s hard to prove I’m not a ghost.


“I was thinking the same thing.

                                             But that’s when I love you the most.”



[From Songs and Letters, October 9, 2008.]

My quiet speaks the loudest.
My words have bravado far beyond their means...
little hussies
how they tend to pose, to evoke
response

But my silence I give to you
as a gift
from my eyes

do you hear?

Two opposite sides of the same coin so to speak. I guess life is often just a matter of perspective...

William Michaelian said...

Loud and clear, Annie, like a rainbow-colored snowflake.

It is, Stickup Artist. And sometimes we can put our hands right through it.

You are a ghost, but don't tell your flesh... (or your beard) - they don't want to hear it. All that Is, is silence ~

William Michaelian said...

So I hear, Donna. Hair today, gone tomorrow.

Stasja Voluti said...

Ah. Yes. Indeed.

Beautiful, William.

William Michaelian said...

Thank you, Stasja.

Oh my, this message about the power of silence has been hitting me everywhere this week, I can hardly believe it. First in a book, then on two other blogs and now here this morning. It would take a novel to explain the circumstance it is helping me with right now, but I will say this much, synchronicity ( and serendipity )strikes agian! Thank you William and everyone who commented! Deb

William Michaelian said...

And we thank you, Deb.

So people, maybe even most, go through their whole lives without hearing something like this.

William Michaelian said...

Or without hearing at all. And that is a tragedy. Thanks, Kevin.

Gerry Boyd said...

yummy.

Two Tigers said...

This is beautiful and true, William, and it makes me happy to think it can be experienced, and offered, and understood.

William Michaelian said...

Hey, Gerry. Thanks. Come back for seconds any old time.

I’m happy too, Gabriella. And I could say more, but I won’t, lest eye talk too much.

You funny William ( twice now, giggle)...
