Seeing is…

Seeing is.

It is said
“seeing is believing”
as if it is that simple
to see.
Some say
“the more I learn
the more I know
I don’t know”.
You say
“it’s so cliché”.
I ask,
is there another way?
Live beyond
what we think we know.
Find the line of focus
where we apply
what we think
to what we perceive.
Play there
in the space
where there is no ease of certainty
where the clarity
of which proceeds
the believing or seeing
will not sit still
long enough
to be captured.
