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.

Wow. You have summed up your experience marvelously. I'm so thankful...Be blessed...:)............
First of all you've used many pair of antonyms - objective / subjective,natural/man-made,perfect/imperfect.. all these words help to create an atmosphere of both the foresight and hindsight.The message of your poem is crystal clear.The psycho- analytical quality of the poem draws the reader in.Evoking his thoughts ,whether he perceives the whole scenario or just he sees the exterior scum in the pond... "Don't ever jump into conclusion by the exterior reflection".Go to the depths of things.A insightful write Sami :) Well done AGAIN!!

like your other poem Real View..this one again talks about two sides..but here its the question between real and perceived things...we all dream ..which may or may not be real..through your words i got the chance to understand that question in a better manner..our mind wanders in search of false notions ..but even to perceive things n to have sum perceptions we need all the fairness to judge them in right manner...thanks for sharing it..:)

Reality is never superficial. It requires proper contemplation to know it.I think one has to go beyond conception too to seek the truth.Thank you for sharing this great insightful poem.

---
did you mean to use "spaces" instead of "space" there in the quote above this...I believe if we look at things as truly blind...than the perception for which we understand would be more vivid in color and all matters in between...

Yes indeed, just because you cannot see, hear, touch, taste or smell its presence do not assume it is not there!

An intriguing piece of poetic literature Sami, laden with deeply purposeful and logical inspiration!
