The eyes of one who is blind,
Can see through all the senses.

The ears,
Seeing the rage of persons
too angry to listen to each other.

The nose,
Seeing the seasons change
when he smells the fresh grass change to crisp leaves.

The tongue,
Seeing the treats and sweets created
tasting the abundance of sugary textures.

The hands,
Seeing the love
felt when another hand clasps around its own.

The eyes are not able to observe,
yet they are, for
just because one gate is closed,
does not mean the others cannot be open.

The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this when I was thinking about poetry topics that I could develop. First, I thought of things that are visually stimulating and captivating. Then, I thought of those who were not able to see things that were visually fascinating - specifically, those who are blind. That is where I got the idea for this piece - how one can see all the beautiful things in life, without eyes.
