How do blind people see nature?

Tiffany Brar
Posted April 13, 2019 from India

 

This question is often asked to me by my friends. They think I cannot see nature at all. They are wrong. I can feel the beauty of the flowers even though they are so silent they give us a sense of tranquility, and happiness while looking at them.  The rain drops, their sound and the coolness they provide, the breeze and  the trees and their silent presence. The trees protect us, but we don’t realize this we cut them for our own pleasure, but god made all this and it should be preserved.

 I love walking in the wind, and my anger cools down when I feel cool breeze on my face, rain drops  sea waves and  the sound of birds. These are little little things which make one happy, and I as a blind person can also feel these things even though I cannot see them. One doesn’t need ye eyes to see one only needs a should and an inner vision, that in itself is your eyes a person who can see from the  outside but not from the inside is  blind, not me I am not blind.

Hello, Tiffany,

Wow, I didn't know if you didn't write about this! I'm so glad to know you appreciate nature, and even more protective of it than those of us who can physically see. Thank you for making us smile with your post. :)

Hi,
you are right nature is not only a object to be seen its a feeling, as JOHN KEATS and WORDSWORTH uses their sensuous states to feel the nature, and the way you describe it
you are right: you are not blind you have a beautiful soul who can feels the beauty of the nature.
keep going
