The Beautiful Vision!

Those beautiful eyes had so many unasked questions. Few were intimidated by her wisdom. Her smile always reflected in her eyes. There were oceans of knowledge and the girlish innocence behind them. Her gaze could penetrate one's heart.  Her eyes posed questions every minute. Her eyes reflected her dreams, desires, ambitions and aspirations. When she was lost in thoughts her eyes used to take her in to the fantasy land miles away. She had a new thing to do in her list every day. Her writings make her immortal.If you are unruffled by her vision then you must be really blind!

This post is dedicated to Helen Keller. Helen Adams Keller (June 27, 1880 – June 1, 1968) was an American author, political activist, and lecturer. She was the first deafblind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree (Source : Wiki) .

“Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there's a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see.” 
― Helen Keller
