Blind Seasons

this poem is to do with the four seasons… and sight loss… may be boring …. but one mans boring is another’s reality and that is mine, with 10% optic nerve left in each eye 😡 have a lovely day everyone ….



What a thing the spring

The pretty daffodils … where?

If only for a few days and hours

The lovely smell …

That newness

The dew, the damp, cool rain…

To whirl and bring warmth again

I feel it not see it

It’s ok I love it

I know it’s Spring…


Now it’s summer

There’s a bummer!

It’s too hot is it not

No air conditioning here

Oh dear!

The warmth through my feet

Wearing sandals what a treat!

Walking in the sea

As the tide comes in

Now there a thing

I feel it not see it

It’s a ok I love it

I know it’s summer


So autumn

Here you are

The door is ajar

The leaves are rustling

Everyone is hustling!

Getting ready for Christmas!

No!  it’s too early

But the leaves are all twirly

Colourful aren’t they?

I feel it not see it

It’s a ok I love it

I know it’s Autumn


Winter oh burrrr it’s cold!

It’s grey out there

So I’m told…

It’s all festive with Christmas joy

I love that feeling … oh boy!

Snow crunch on ground

Ok it’s found

The white stuff under my toes

With cold it glows

I feel it not see it

It’s a ok I love it

I know it’s Winter


I can feel it, hear it, touch it, sense it… it’s here…it’s ok… isn’t it…  what’s that saying… you don’t need sight to have vision…

But Isn’t that a division .though .. between light and dark

What a lark!

I’m ok …

I became interested in poetry and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at
