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
Is amazing;
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.
