Comprehension - Poem by Alison Smith

My eyes will see
My ears will hear
My mind will store and sort
Though I might yet not comprehend
The scenes before me are being processed.

    Strange creature this human brain. It seems to have a mind of its own! It works away in its own way at its own pace, and some of the time it puts us in the picture. Succinctly and poetically expressed. Wish I could do this kind of thing in so few words. Very impressed. Jim (Report)Reply
