How we see colors and perspective

amazing brain



I look at colors

on my artist’s palate

and wonder if everyone

sees the same as I


how does one learn what

colors look like, feels like


what does the color of a

cardinal look like

or the feathers of a blue bird

to another


I am pleased for

sight given me

for allowing me to enjoy beauty

without confusion


some claim to be colorblind

how do they know


sight also allows us to see


something that looks real to us

yet is not


a tree in the distance is not

actually smaller

but looks smaller to us


a railroad track does not

join together in the distance

as it appears


if not for perspective

which is deception

all things would look the same size

and pile up on top of each other


be pleased that red and green

look different so you can

find strawberries in the garden


be pleased that nature fools our eye

as we see the distant mountains

This reminded me of a thought I had back when I was 18. I always questioned myself deep down whether the world around us actually existed as we see it or done see it how it really is for some specific reason and if some entity from a distant galaxy came down would they see completely differently.
