The blind man
Woke up this morning
And saw the sun rise.
The blind man,
You see,
Was not totally blind,
He was borderline blind.

He could see the difference
Of night and day.

He could see the forest
But, not , the leaves.

He could sense where
He was going without
Totally knowing
Just where he was.
Or, where he was
Supposed to be.

He could taste,
Feel and touch.
He could laugh,
Cry and fall in love.

Not in that exact order.

He could only follow his heart
And his dreams.

Out of the darkness,
Into the light.

Once again.

Ronald Peter Ciras

The Ultimate Vision
Your blind man is not blind! I believe that he sees what so many people cannot: the path to one's own nirvana, the happiness we humans can experience before eternity.

This poem is very powerful and moving, a real poem (or, as I say it, an 'Ars' poem). Thanks for posting it!
