Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Canopy

Eugenia is the host of Eugi’s Causerie

Your Weekly Prompt – Canopy – April 1, 2021

♾♾♾♾

Blue sky forms a canopy over my world

It’s neither blue nor does it offers any protection

But to our eyes, it’s the epitome of a beautiful day

Optic illusions that we humans accept as facts

We seek shelter in false hope and expectancy

Avoid the verity and close our eyes to reality

Enjoy the blue sky but find the courage to seek truth

Seek the authenticity, reject the hearsay

  1. That is a really interesting image. I like the blue canopy and even though I know it is something of an illusion, intellectually, my soul hungers for it nonetheless. Yet authenticity is the better way to go, even if it does not always fit in with how we’d like to see life.

  2. Excellent poem, Sadje. Is that your picture as well? I love these lines, “It’s neither blue nor does it offers any protection But to our eyes, it’s the epitome of a beautiful day” How true. We never think about blue sky offering protection. It does, of course, or we would have no air to breath.

    1. The Photo was from the free library, it was a misunderstanding when I said it was mine, I thought Marsh was asking about my profile picture. Lol!
      Thanks Leigha. You’re right, we do base our perceptions on the visuals.
