Mama Hen’s Scratchings: B is for Blind

The subject of blindness came up at one of my writing groups, so lack of sight has been on my mind.

The sightless do miss much. The face of a lover. The smiles of their children. The beauty of nature. They also miss some of the ugliness in the world.

Despite what they miss visually, I wonder if they might see deeper than those of us with sight.

 

If we were all blind

There’s much we’d miss

The smile of a child

The sneer of a bully

 

Beauty and fashion

Would count for naught

All attraction would be

To the person inside

 

If we were all blind

We’d never see color

On flowers or birds

Or peoples’ skin

 

How would we judge

If we couldn’t tell

Whether they wore

A cross or a burka

 

If we were all blind

There’s much we’d miss

But without eyesight

We’d look with our heart

 

Today’s post is day 2 of the A-Z challenge.
