Perception

Our eyes may calmly look upon this earth
Perceive its beauty, and admire its wonder,
And wander fitfully around its girth
Dividing elements and parts asunder.

For all that we behold we seek to name,
To understand. We always want to know
What’s different, similar, and what’s the same,
Why mountains bulge and whither rivers flow.

But as we grasp the world, our own ideas
Stand in the way of what our eyes can see.
Our stories, superstitions, hopes and fears
Do not allow our judgement to be free.

Know this and your vision will be clearer:
The world’s but your reflection in a mirror.

Patterns of life

The latest 100wcgu challenge is to write a sonnet, possibly including St.George. I gave poor old George a miss. Conversion-at-dragon-point is not really my cup of tea,  and I rather like dragons anyway, see an Elizabethan dragon, and it’s clan.

    1. Thanks! I like creating various things, hence the eclecticism. I’m glad you think it’s focussed. I’ve rather been letting things develop, going with whatever I feel like doing.:-)

Let me know what you think...
