Bridged


look to the crystalline
sky for clarity everywhere
else is blurred reality

mirrored by the world
we perceive bridged
this line of symmetry

**Dani (Haiku Love Songs) urged us to use a photograph for inspiration at Poetry Jam. The one I have chosen comes from my own personal stash.

The blur between what's real and what we think is real--in the photo and in the words--captured well here.

the feeling of calm this verse brings is beautiful. so much of a meaning embedded in simple words.

The blur in perceptions and twisting views is brilliant.

Being a lifelong sky-watcher, I really loved this - yes, clarity above, it's pretty chaotic down here. Lovely photo too.

A beautiful and vivid photo to accent your words. I love "blurred reality" as a phrase - very descriptive.

I love the photo & the implication that all is not as it seems.

Blurred reality reminds me of Magritte, whose blurred painted reality had a clear message to deliver, like the one in this beautiful poem.
