The One-Eyed Doe

A Doe had had the misfortune to lose one of her eyes, and could not see any one approaching her on that side. So to avoid any danger she always used to feed on a high cliff near the sea, with her sound eye looking towards the land. By this means she could see whenever the hunters approached her on land, and often escaped by this means. But the hunters found out that she was blind of one eye, and hiring a boat rowed under the cliff where she used to feed and shot her from the sea. “Ah,” cried she with her dying voice, “You cannot escape your fate.”

Prim Postulate: I am enough. I have enough. I do enough.

The sighted person always has a roof overhead, in the form of the blue sky or the clouds, or the stars at night. The same is true for the blind person of the sound of the wind in the trees. It creates trees; one is surrounded by trees whereas before there was nothing.

Wolves & Women

Wolves and women
have this in common.
We have been hunted
without mercy for our wild.
And yet we have never
stopped fighting back.
Tooth and nail.
Fang and claw.

and things wouldn’t be perfect if we could.
We can only continue.
