Thinking of Helen Keller
by Lucio Muñoz
To impress in any full able body art really
You need to master a especial natural ability;
To over come a disability and excel in creativity,
You need a sort of supernatural ability.
For example, to be able to express what you can see, feel,
Taste, hear or smell
To be able to communicate well even in verses
In the absence of basic senses
Is mind bugging.
So when I hear that someone can see when in darkness
And/or can hear in a world that is soundless,
I do not think of a fortune teller,
I think of Helen Keller.
