    sorry with an iPhone 6 ....almost impossible to  get the right strike light and see the Braille on top....
    and the embossing on the bottom
    if you click on full image and scroll you can get an idea

    the paper is actually a soft white and the text is light grey

    mucho likey​

    I had an affair with a girl that read braille​
    she had a machine that scaled in the same as a dump truck​
    parked at the dinner table it was at all hours of the day and night​
    And the noise​
    I used to think the walls were coming down every time a key was struck​
    not that it even sat well with Sunday roast and gravy​
    she tried no end to teach me, y Guitarra is was not. This was no tango, kid​

    I also learned how to communicate. She was excelente, sensitive, strong ​
    She got a good job in Scotland. Tides came and went. I lost the machine​

    PS She also said always pin your socks together, never lose track of a proper pear!​

    I love my cleaner, too.​
    Best wishes to Lady N & Merlin​

    ' A poem should have the touch ... the way sunlight falls on Braille.'

    A relative of mine is deaf-blind.  I'm not really getting, with respect, how she would find the touch of such a poem comforting?

    That cover is beautiful, quiet, and yet passionate, somehow ...

    dear Ben

    a dear friend who was the baby sitter for me and my brother when we were young
    lost her sight around the age of 17 ......afterwards she travelled and studied....became an expert advisor to museums and such
    to advise them about making their exhibits more accessible  to the visually impaired

    during the years when i was doing pointillistic paintings .....she would run her fingers over my canvases
    feel / sense the colors

    we have had many discussions over the last 5 decades on many dimensions

    i also have a cousin who was a sign teacher , translator

    i understand the situation of your relative being without sight or sound

    "the touch of such a poem"  as you say...... is about as much about a realization/awakening/satori
    as anything else

    and i feel assured that your relative has had the beauty of those in her life too

    thank you for your kindness to raise the topic

    a warm smile

    Thanks, Silent.  Whether it's a cloudy day or there's sunlight on the braille, I'm still no closer to understanding the simile and what difference it would make to a blind person, and how this links to the good or bad touch of a poem.
