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.

The placement of the contrasting words brings out that notion of perceiving beyond what first impressions give. We all differ in how we see things. Nice picture.

Yes, but doesn't that perception serve to awaken our insight? This piece raises a lot of questions for me...I think you could have dug even deeper on many of the lines. At any rate, I always like pieces that raise a few questions.

I hope all is well then. Take good care....:)............
Perceptions are so fickle, expressed in likes and dislikes, appreciations and distortions, but still dependent on one's "mood" and emotions. One may see the same thing twice and have different perceptions based solely on how one feels at that moment. A beautiful sunset one evening as earth and sky blend into one canvas when one is feeling elated by the beauty of nature and one is content with the love of one's partner. Sadness in another sunset when change is frightening and darkness is sure to come. Beautiful poem, Sami.

It really does depend on perceptions and perceptions only. There is nothing left for me to say about the subject which you haven't included in this poem. Hats off!
