Naftakin, The Blind            
                                   
                                          
 A Student  At The  Charcoal Guild... His 
 Eyes  Sewn  Shut From Birth... The  Most 
            Successful Student            
                                          
 But One Day  He Fell Down Into A Crystal 
 Cavern.  It Was Deep  In The Mountain, A 
 Great  Hall  With  Only  A  Single  Tiny 
 Inlet   For  Both   Light   And  Falling 
                Students...               
                                          
 In The  Fall, The Quartz Sliced Off  The 
 Threads  In His Eyes,  Opening  Them For 
 The   First   Time.   Before  Him,   The 
 Crystals Mirrored And  Refracted The One 
 Light  Smidge  Into  A  Whole Night Sky, 
 And   He   Was  Struck  Down   With  Awe 
                                          
 But  Also With  Shame, Because His  Eyes 
 Had  Seen.  Hurriedly,  He  Used  Thread 
 From   His  Robe   To  Sew   Them   Back 
 Together, And When Help  Came He Did Not 
        Tell Of His Transgression.        
                                          
 For Years He  Studied  At The Guild.  He 
 Became A  Master, And  Then  A  Pilgrim. 
 Yet The  Image From  The Cave Never Left 
                   Him.                   
                                          
 At  The End Of  His  Life, When  At  The 
 Edge  Of The World  He Opened  His  Eyes 
 For A Second Time, Stars  Had Hatched In 
                  Them...
