Would you rather be
Deaf and blind
But feel the presence
Of the divine

Or would you prefer
Full vision
Perfect hearing
And a numb heart
A soul unmoved

By mystery
By the nudges

Permeates every pore
And defies all reason

For deaf and blind
Would have peace

And perfect hearing
Would have
Only numbness
Devoid of an appreciation
For all that is seen
Or heard

An appreciation
For all that goes unseen
But felt
And known
In the cavernous recesses
Of an alive
