Trying To Touch The Sky

"The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision."  ~Helen Keller





All the objects within my view seem so easy to capture within my hands.
The distance between their light and shade is reachable from wear I stand.

Yet, I feel the steps would turn into miles, if tomorrow I lost my sight.
My ability to reach my destination would be like trying to touch the sky.

These hands of mine would certainly have another role to play.
They would no longer just reach out to hold, but guide and lead the way.

My sense of trust would have to increase greater than what I know.
Everything I take for granted now would have a value that would grow.

For sight and true vision are second cousins from distant stars.
One sheds light upon the cornea and the other illuminates the heart.

Linking with Imaginary Gardens and all the beautiful toads. :-)

  1. Carrie,

    The importance of having vision and sight, in order to be able to make our own judgements about what we see, rather than depend upon another's interpretation..A majestic gift..

    Happy April Carrie,

    Eileen

  2. Helen Keller would be proud of you today, Carrie. All of your lines impressed me, with their writing but more so what they tell. I especially liked My sense of trust would have to increase greater than what I know
    All the males in my father's line that I knew, from great-grandfather were blind several years before they died, including my father at age 97.
    I seriously believe that I have that to look forward to also.

  3. Aw! I too like those last lines very much, and also the wordiness of this piece really makes it roll along nicely.
    A tiny note: I think you mean "where" in the first stanza? Or maybe not.

  4. A thought.... wouldn't it be easier to touch the sky without sight, and only vision? i think it just may...

  5. Those last lines speak to me. I am always a stumbling block away from my ladder to the sky.
