Sundown hour

spring sunset song time
crickets chirp eve’s aloneness
down with the sunlight  
warming no longer cold ground
upon which it rests day-long

Brain Bias (Poem and Recommended Reading)

day to day
altered states relate
under cerebral protection
memories ours, keeper encoding
meaning, memories, converting
encoded meaning  
yesterday, today, tomorrow

RE: Ambiguous images and figures psychology

It’s not about doubting everything that comes through our senses. It’s about looking for our blind spots. […] Our brains work hard to bend reality to meet our prior experiences, our emotions, and our discomfort with uncertainty.

Liminal Space 1 (Poem)

Familiarity replaced:
Strange space . . . takes confidence under
Normal circumstances, but this  
Seemingly benevolent change   
Impresses consideration
Of meaning’s definition, like
Eye-spells clue to one’s root, or state.  
Fate, or waking dream—déjà vu

A bewildering clarity
Before mind sorts to past events.
