Mirror Poem Travels Mind Sight to Memory

Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem mixes sight and thought, memory and recall. Thanks for reading this, and I hope some of it, or something on this site, is worth recalling sometime.

One Way Optic Nerve, Visual Cortex Return Signals 

some times you see what you look for
other things just come into view
often the scenery is normal
occasionally it’s surprising too
sky changes colour at least twice daily
although clouds often obscure the view

time changes everything, memory records moments

but best times always fly obscured
in mental zone of ephemeral thoughtless focus
when brain runs automatically
like yoga master body lotus
other times images enter the mind
some things only register when triggers prompt us
