It is about perspective, our world view,
Influencing what we accept as true,
Reality, child of our believing,
With passivity we adopt meaning,
Self-centered focus sets reason askew.
Without questioning data we accrue,
Falsity and deception may ensue,
We are hindered by not truly seeing,
It is about perspective.
Looking at your canvas, upon review,
You will see the colors chosen FOR you,
Will your world be painted while you’re dreaming,
Or with eyes open, your view be freeing?
Cognizance of our thoughts is overdue,
It is about perspective…
This is my first attempt at writing a Rondeau. Inspired by “Cubby” http://reowr.wordpress.com/, who has introduced me to some fun challenges. This particular style was difficult for me. I suspect that is because I tried to fit such a multifaceted topic into a the confines of a small box! I’m hoping it makes sense! Thanks for reading!
