Sally's Eyes

by Debi Pick Marquette

Most of you know Sally Law

She is the Blind Detective

 She maintained and still she saw

Small fragments quite selective


Sally has a rare case of

Retinitis Pigmentosa

Now she'll only see with love

And from her garden roza


Pray for Sally as she finds

Remaining sight is gone

Genetic blindness just reminds

What she could not count on


Sally needs us all to see

And also to believe

Perhaps she’ll still do poetry

She doesn’t want to leave


To finish book is still her plan

Please let her know you care

Support her anyway you can

Especially with prayer




This was a message I got from Sally this morning. I doubt she'll mind me sharing:

I need your prayers. Yesterday I woke up with a large amount of my remaining eyesight gone. There are dark pools in the bottom of both of my eyes and there is nothing there. It is very scary to me. It appears I am at the end of my sight.

A roza is an imaginary garden, where Sally visits often as she loves her flower gardens real or otherwise.
