Blindness by Francis A. Willey


Blind like a sea roaring off shore

or a tree waving from the top of
a mountain – no one has climbed –
blind like ants in the shadow
of a step, or a temple – a day after war –
blind like a crosswalk or a keyhole
in the night…
blind as a bird in a storm.

Blind as a winner – losing again…
blind as sunshine – a screen to a
widow’s web.

Blind like worn shoes of a dancer,
or a statue directing our way –
blind as a lamppost in daylight –
blind as a window draped in cloth –
blind like darkness you have brought.

    Thank you Claudette, it is what others feel when one thinks someone cannot see, yet they do, they are not blind like we know what blind is. Sincerely, Nancy
