Billy's Autism

Autistic blank gaze Graces the spaces of mind Rainbow's grace bestows Dark forest gives way to trees A smile colors blank spaces ................. Contest: Forest Lights Sponsor: Carolyn Devonshire

    You describe this complex condition so with such intimacy; wonder if you have dealt with anyone afflicted. My friend's daughter has it from an infected innoculation given in childhood. So sad.
