Blind Sight

Hey Momma

 Take a walk in Madeline’s shoes,
 see with her vision, compare views.
 Blurry, focussed and out of sight,

 What do the visually impaired see?
 as they map the world so differently.
 Lights and movement, all a dimming,
 and that is usually only the beginning. 

 Maddie’s instincts alerted, to find out,
 what those noises and shapes are about.
 Runaway chaos of periphery confusion,
 what is reality and is that an illusion?

 Like feet on stilts, stacked in unlaced boots,
 mindfully balancing, tottering new routes.
 Inter dimensional paths, that criss cross,
 although she doesn’t know what is lost.

 but she’s happy with sights that she has.
