PICTURE IN A FRAME

We form images
The second
We meet people,
Old and new.

We use references
Acquired
To include them
In our view.

What we’re witnessing
Is seldom
An impression
Of what is.

It starts vanishing
The moment
We interpret.
What we miss

Is the character
Dimension
Passed the focus
On a name.

Stop to register
Each other
Like a picture
In a frame.

    Nice idea Jerry, and so true as to our pre-judgement of people. Impressions guide us but are rarely conclusive. Well penned and expressed my friend.
