Blinded by sight

 Blink

 

When we blink our eyes,

we might say that in the short
instant our eyes were closed
there was nothing that we missed.
 
But in that short instant, men were at war, and men, women and children were slain.  
 
A woman desperately searched for her child who had been taken in the night.  
 
A  homeless man scrapes the inside of a garbage can for any small bit to eat.
 
In the twilight, the sun blushed in brilliance as the nakedness of its light was exposed to the darkness of night.
 
And tragically the passion of love was dashed from misunderstanding and the absence of trust.
 
But had we not blinked, and stared directly into the face of life, would then we see?

more importantly, perhaps, is the question of whether or not we would act on what we see... sight means little if it fails to ignite our passion to prevail in the face of injustice. I like your poem, and the way it settles around this crucial issue.

Lots to muse on in this write that questions life and living
