Perception

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.

Things are not always as they seem my friend. You spill this message onto paper so effortlessly and remind us all that no matter what happens in life, we should expect change and be careful of what our perceptions will tell us about reality.

Well done

"What you see is not what you get, it is what you perceive"
Great wisdom and thoughts in the poem. The above lines are true. Each person see the world with different eyes and thoughts. This is why change is hard. Always a pleasure to read your amazing poetry.

Sami you're waxing philosophy here, and I too wonder about how my perception might differ from so many others, and how I wish, I could tune into that of others; I guess, to examine all those different perspectives, out there? What might we learn if walking in another person's shoes requires only a moment of projection into anothers kaleidoscope of experiences? I'd like to know, how others see the world... Some believe, that at the moment of death, our consciousness merges with the infinite, or, the source. Theorizing that this might be true, could we then become privy, have access to every perception /perspective and experiences that every living being ever had?
Thank you for allowing some room for a tangent, Sami.

A thought provoking piece.

Meaning is only ever what we perceive of reality.
Very much in line with Plato here.

You have taken us on a sojourn through the abstract ambiance of a antediluvian dilemma. There are many wondrous worlds and horrid habitats that exist in the minds of men. Treasure and terror live in the realm of perceptions.
Great write my friend.
