Found poetry for April 12, 2022 National Poetry Month Poetry Challenge
In Hidden Brain’s “Both Things Can Be True”, scientists discuss, “ It’s psychologically simpler to see the world in black and white. But reality often comes in shades of gray. This week, how our minds grapple with contradictions, especially those we see in other people.
Here I explore this topic in a found haiku poem.
An Image Black Again White in Gray
Two faces each an
artist interested in
mind cipher either
a duck or rabbit
a young girl or old woman
either or not both
metaphor for us
friends or foes, sinners or saints
brings us soup reveal mental
see the world in all its complexity
