Optical Illusion

 

The mind’s eye works with a palette

Colour once introduced

Cannot be unseen

Presented in black and white

You are an optical illusion

We accept this art form with awareness

Life experience and emotion

Provide a vast array of hues and shades

It’s up to us to choose the paint

*

We need only remember

There is beauty in all of it

Even if it is an illusion

[Note: I was so excited when I read this great poem this evening. It was written by Belinda on her blog “Busy Mind Thinking”. Belinda’s words just seemed to fit so perfectly with the photographs I took on Saturday at Masson Mills – a disused cotton mill – in Derbyshire. More about this absolutely fascinating place in a proposed future post. But for now, I really hope you enjoyed the words above as much as I did.Β Please make sure any comments on the poem are left on Belinda’s blog page – Β

  1. I cannot believe the life you have given my poem with your photography. I am so moved I just don’t even know the appropriate way to convey my gratitude. My belief is often that “no words” are the perfect words. I should apply that now. May I have permission to re-blog this post? Thank you for what you have done. ❀

  2. My absolute pleasure. It is a fabulous poem. And as I read the words earlier this evening, I just couldn’t believe how fitting they were with the photos in my head that I knew I had taken at the weekend. They (your words, my pics!) belong together, and it would have been unjust to keep them apart πŸ˜ƒ. I would be humbled if you reblogged! Thanks.
