Memoir

does this sound fair
to present only one side
of a complicated story?

yet all I have to tell
is what I witnessed, things
I heard, my thoughts

true but slanted
light through the slats
my half-opened blind, all this

I can offer and call it
the facts, bits and pieces
of the only truth, I know

no more than what I could see
from where I was sitting
and I could not shift

position, with nowhere to be
but where they put me
there I was


--smh








Must be time for The Mag!

Many sides, even in a jar.

I can see what you mean. = )

That's what comes of only peeping through the slats. We should open the shutters for the bigger picture.

No shifting positions here...that's for sure...

Well said. Even when we have creative minds and great imagination we can only know what we witness.

The photo is a little disturbing and very thought provoking. It looks like the guy living in the glass house needs some rocks to throw and may have needed a bathroom. At least he has a book.

You brought some light through the slats - well done.

.. with nowhere to be but where they put me .. I'm reminded of my four day jury duty stint a few months ago.

Another little gem! Don't know how you do this, but I'm glad you do.

Jinksy said...

That is an interesting concept to ponder... :)

Kutamun said...

Great concept, reality is so much bigger than we imagine, i suppose, from our individual and unique perspectives in the quantum field , thanks.
