Glasses and Vision

September 29, 2019

She wears her new progressive lens proudly

needs them night and day

but they limit sight

the frames block the periphery

the nuances

the shadows and truth

she is accustomed to, slant

the shiny new glass now smeared with her fingerprints

Why would 20 20 vision cause her distress?

Because she is used to intuition

sees through many senses

the heart

a keen mind

a willing spirit

She knows deer slowly cross the lane

feels their hooves in vibration

while her eyes fail her

the new lens.
