TOUCH

The blind see with their fingers
read seemingly blank  pages
white, with subtle bumps, shorthand
relief, creating images, in touch
with words, associations in memory
fields, tactile panoramic vistas of mind
transcendence of detachment to imagine
in visions what cannot be  viewed
their perspective in a cave,  brave objective
state of rest, test of durance, lens of intellect
must focus dark light, in un-interrupted
continuous, temporal, obscure night.
