I Am Reading People Today

I am reading people today.
Their faces, their smiles, their twinkles and flashes.
Their energy in the form of art, and poetry.
I am reading everyone I can get my eyes on.

I am reading poems, and stories.
I am reading their lives, and their loves.
I am relishing their heartfelt journeys.
I am vicariously living in imaginations not my own.

I am reading people today.
On the street, at work, in my house.
They all want to be read, cherishing my time.
I am spending my time on the Internet, making friends

All around the world, on poetry sites,
Through texts and emails. Through face time.
I am reading people today.
Their faces, their smiles, their twinkles and their flashes.

Had to "fav"; I like this idea: "I am vicariously living in imaginations not my own."

Well, I don’t usually say much directly but I did like this poem. I must say I do read people a lot, so what you write makes sense in many ways. Poetry is an art. I always like to make mine a little enigmatic since I usually write from my subconscious mind :)

Nice write Caren. I never meet people because I am a loner. Not because I don't like people, I like everyone, I'm just not a mixer. When I do bump into them I can read them quite well and I always try to make them smile. most people don't understand me. I have my own mind. I enjoyed your poem, my friend. Good on ya....peter

Thank you Peter. I would have NEVER EVER EVER guessed that you were a loner. You have never been a loner to me!
