Seeing straight
is like a curved ball:

Parallel lines from arc of eye
which trace curled spine of earth.

Sight that has no
blind corners;
Vision that is without
hidden angles.

Focus that's adjusted
to life outside the box.

Now, here's a find for a dreary afternoon of searching for a poem on several sites that's worth reading, pondering and sending back some thoughts. Well, you scored high on all counts. Succinctly profound in its simplicity of structure, lyrically flowing with just enough play on words to make the point. Loved this one.

Perspective is EVERYTHING
and great is the soul
that can see from many perspectives.

Wisdom coaxed from the heart of a paradox. Beautiful write.

Marvelous, Kate - perhaps you should teach your vision to our world leaders - far too many of them seem unable to think or see 'outside the box.'

Kate, your perspective has hit a home run ;)
it's so true we have to see around our parameters and then perhaps we can focus on life's hidden angles and play around its curves ...

One of J. D. Salinger's characters believes we should shoot at marbles by not looking, that trying too hard to see actually blinds us.

oh this makes me think of the
different types of curves we can run into
or trip over, imagine if the curve was a marble ball
and as we vision.........we can reflect!
excellent brain lady lol pax A

It's clear to see that your perspective is lucid
and spot on! If we could but live it;-)

You have a Poet's eye in visualizing the world--we don't see the world the same way as most see it--THANK GOD for our warpedness LOL (is that a word? It is now!).

Excellent, thought provoking write--a keeper!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :)

Oh so good, only focuse lies outside the box
I believe also. Perspective is Ponderance. ;)

my perspective has always been peculiarly skewed for years, i would be lost if it suddenly became focussed

Oh, Kate...I love this!
"Vision that is without hidden angles" is my
favorite line in this.
Could well apply to true love, too.

Ah! let me get things into perspective...ha! not a chance lol, another superb write Kate, seeing as only a poet can see. Perspective has nothing to do with the minds eye, such an alien concept would make things uneasily boring...Sheesh! I've got to lay off the absinthe lol.

Reviewed by Felix Perry 4/27/2005
Good one Kate perspective though is all in how you look at things and you obviously lool at things in a deep retrospective sort of way then wrap up the solution in your verse. Very well done girl, I like it.
