Cogito, ergo sum.

There is a brilliance
in this darkness
that even the blind
will see.

There is a symphony
in this silence - -

A heaven - for me.

We are but a breeze
amidst a storm at sea

This precarious spark
We-- humanity.

I love this poem... but don't understand the meaning of the title. could you educate me? sometimes I feel like I'm one of the number of the blind. yet every now and then I get a flash of light behind closed eyelids.
these are my favorite lines of this piece:

We are but a breeze
amidst a storm at sea

This precarious spark
We-- humanity.

hiya, Witcy.

Cogito, ergo sum.... I think, therefore I am..... René Descartes.
Perhaps tad pretentious of me to use as a title,
but the poem was written at a time when I questioned,,,, is all this shit worth it?
I can now happily report after much cogitation......... Yes!

Thank you so much for stopping by dear Lady.

Obi.
