Miracle of Light

The miracle of light
Cannot be heard or felt
Tasted or smelt
Day or night

Electromagnetic radiation
Detected by a bio-mechanism
Sensing waves or packages
Depending on whom you ask
Resonance frequency
Photons or amplitude

Projected through optic gelatin
Onto reactive internal flesh
Upside down, turned right side up
In the mysterious brain
Organic and therefore unique
Each image in the eye of the beholder

Color, brightness, darkness
Shadows cast
Tone and hue
(Me and you)
Infrared or ultraviolet

Dispersion of light
Propagated through
A pyramid of cut glass
Or a belt of water droplets
At an angle of deviation
A degree of refraction
Fractured into a spectrum

Deceiving appearances
Glare and mirage
Ghost image
Optical illusion
Shadow puppets
Peripheral vision
Thought I saw

Subjective selection
Striking the eye
With particles particularly pleasing
Perceiving a curve of rosy reflection
Color of blood filtered through
Skin we somehow judge as beautiful
Through some animal chemical reaction
The very inception of misperception

Seeing you over there
I would have never suspected
The ultimate reality where
We are all connected
So I hope you can sympathize
As now I feel the fool
To have failed to realize
That you are so beautiful
