eyelids and earlids

eyelids and earlids



beauty from color



glimmer from a lake


all lost with eyelids closed


birds songs in the forest,

symphony of city car horns

beeping to a crescendo

cooing of a morning dove

breathing of a lover


all lost with ear lids shut


is one better

to lose than the other


one would have to ask Helen Keller

but would she really know what’s missed

when eyelids are closed from sights

or ear lids are shut from sounds


open your lids

love life to the limits

take in marvelous sights

waltz to glorious sounds

Interesting question, Candice. I am sure that she saw the beauty in all of these. Thanks for reading!

Love this 😊 It does make me curious - did HK experience beauty with her other senses (touch, taste and scent) because she did not know what she was missing?
