Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Memory

http://lindaghill.files.wordpress.com/2014/08/socs-badge.jpg?w=656

 

A fluid reflection
of concrete facts;
how do you know
if it is clear
or tainted?
Do you see it
directly
or through a pane
or in a looking glass?
Do you see it
through waves?
But then…
How do you recognize
a ripple
if the ripple is all
you’ve ever seen?

What if
what you see
is distorted?

What if
it’s inaccurate?

And what if
it’s not?

    Great questions. 🙂 I think many of my memories are like looking through frosted glass these days. 😛

    Well done! I especially liked: “How do you recognize a ripple if the ripple is all you’ve ever seen?” I really enjoyed this post and how you used this week’s prompt! 🙂
