Everyone Has A Different Understanding

Rating: 5.0


Everyone has a different understanding
Of the color red,
Not everyone agrees upon what should be done in bed.
Everyone sees the world with a pair of eyes
But what is beheld in the mind might come as a big surprise.
Some see beauty, joy and pleasure
While others ugliness, shame, disgust,
Something that all should shun
It momentarily can boggle a person,
Until it is remembered
Everyone has a different understanding
Of the color red.

So far, my favorite. You hint at things, but move on quickly. I have read it through several times, .. appreciating a new angle each time. You have a gift for this form.

You'll never know how you'll look through other's eyes. It also depends if you are looking, or seeing. This is my favorite.

Excellent! What is seen through the eyes and what is seen in the mind can be different to everyone. Ah, but what about what is seen through the heart? Another different understanding. You touch on such a fine balance between what is to some and what is to others. DC
