“What do you see?” the doctor asks, but it is difficult to explain.

“Colors!” I cry. But I can not tell him which colors they are.

“Don’t worry”, he says. “In time your vision should clear and you’ll be able to differentiate objects.”

My eyes fill with tears for the beauty all around. I have no worry, no fear. This rainbow of colors is more than I have ever seen. What the doctors have accomplished is truly a miracle.

“David?” It is my mother’s voice. A blur of movement as she leans in to comfort me.

She is colored beautiful.
