Worth Mentioning…

Do you ever feel

Like there is something more

Something our senses can’t detect

But in certain moments

When it is quiet

And time stands still

It shows itself

~*~

Perception is a mental impression

Shaped by learning, memory, expectation and attention

An interpretation of one’s changing environment

A discernment of meaning from moment to moment

A realization of what’s of personal value

~*~

The awareness of a fledgling thought

Not passed into storage

But molded into something new

A creative beacon

To guide one’s compass in life

~*~

Eyes see, but don’t really see it all

Perception is the key

Intuition a guide

A doorway into the unknown

A stearing wheel to awareness

~*~

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”

(Henry David Thoreau)

    There have certainly been times in my life where the presence of “other” was strongly perceived. Like the way you phrase, Olga.

  9. Lovely. I think we share a perception of perception… and by extension, perhaps, reality. =)

      Thanks, Patrick. It was a nice surprise to see your comment pop-up. 🙂 Yes, perception and reality intertwine themselves in our life dance. Sometimes in a negative way and sometimes positive. I try to keep my positive glasses on. 🙂

  10. Your words were more than “worth mentioning”, Olga. I have been writing about perception for quite some time and your insightful summation was beyond amazing! I tagged it to my library so I can read and reread. Thank you again for sharing your creative talents! 🌸Erika

    Thank-you so much, Erika. ❤ I’m so please that you thought my summation in poetic form was insightful. I also feel joyous that you perceived the value of my creative efforts. In the right moments, I have a sense of being a channel for floating ideas. An example would be, “a stearing wheel to awareness.” Wishing you a wonderful week! 🙂
