It is not all in the perception and projection... It is looking beyond things too( You have to see things in its entirety)...Very important and necessary...A philosophy and psychology writes.

Perception/……………By Sami Khalil

It is not all in the perception and projection. It is in the insight of things.See the big picture and not just the small one...Very important and necessary…A philosophy writes.


The Poem:



That which surrounds me…in all its rugged truths


That which thrives around…in the seen and the unseen


I awake! Like all the tattered souls…?


To higher orders- lower ones


To extraordinary things- ordinary ones


To natural beauties- man-made ones


To objective matters- subjective ones


Even to perfect (sunrises, sunsets) - imperfect ones


Not restless, but under the madness of deflowered thoughts

of perception, searching for raw meanings and lines between

space and time.


For it is not all in the perception and projection

When minds dance in the wondering of,

Actions and reactions,

Plain sights and hind-sights. It is in the discernment of things.


And for that matter, perceptions require fairness and more than single traces,

in the surrender of concern and confusion.


What you see is not what you get; it is what you perceive, beyond...

And have a proper "conception" of,

The visible realms and the invisible ones.


Then…I awake! To that which surrounds me?

Perception is both a blessing and a curse these days. We often see things as we wish them to be then get upset when it is not as we imagined yet attribute it to what we saw. Maybe this is why I'm on such a honesty kick with many people now - you want to know what I am thinking about something, ask me.

As always, wonderful reading your works Sami.

Now I'm beginning to be more cautious in what my senses perceive and how I interpret it, thank you.

I see an awakening in this piece.. an excitement, like a little child seeing something for the first time and wondering, turning over, and exploring without any narrow minded limitations…

That is such a great read, perception, and projection, actions and reactions. Plain sights and hind-sights. All great words of wisdom sometime not thought about until it is too late. The reality of life,

When minds dance in the wondering of,
Actions and reactions,
Plain sights and hind-sights. It is in
the discernment of things.

Thought provoking and creative, beautifully penned.

What is real, who can tell?
Like the saying, 'What you percieve, you must believe' this piece has a much deeper meaning, lying veiled in the shadows of perception. An enjoyable read.

So nice I read it twice! Nice piece of writing here poet, again well thought out. Perspective is everything, one either chooses to look at the light/positive or the darkness/negative. Me, I'm a light-seeker forever and always. :)

We all see the world a bit differently...mostly because we are human and we are all just a little bit different. I think that is the beauty of the world though. The fact that not everything appeals to every person is a good thing. Your assessment of any given situation might be quite different from mine, but neither of us would be wrong. It is just as when two people read a poem. They can interpret it to represent different concepts, but it is what THEY see...and that is what matters. What the poet meant it to be about does not really mean a thing. I enjoyed this one, Sami. Always a pleasure to read you. Lydi**
