Such is the irony,
You don’t even notice them . . .blind eyes,
Eyes that you notice are exceptional,
come in colors like aqua or ultramarine,
or hazel eyes that catch the sun and
turn in a kaleidoscopic wheel of color,
true there is certain dimness if well observed,
but what I noticed were
other things of exceptional brightness –
like the smile, and a sweet and literally
low-down way of talking, chin to collar on a coat
that had style,
real style.

– Bhikshuni Weisbrot.
