Duality of Sight

A poem for the "Sensational" challenge

Sight is a blessing, there is no equality

Is it the greatest gift? I’d defend with ferocity

Believing what is in front, it confirms reality


But is it truly the greatest gift?

Also other senses exist, do they not persist?

It’s never wise to set your mind so straight

Deceiving yourself into believing sight is the only great


To you I say think and appreciate

The elegance of sight, allowing us to accommodate

Mind fabrications to reality, affiliates

Alludes to a better world. Illuminates


Did you find the hidden (not so hidden) Haiku? (read the bolded words)

    Oh, Mohammed, this is masterful! I did spot the hidden poem, but like Dharrsheena, didn't realise until the end that it was a haiku! So thought-provoking and a brilliant take on the challenge! Love it!

  • Omg! I did find the hidden poem but I didn't realise it was a Haiku! This was so brilliant!
