What we see

So much of what we see — or think we see — 
Is conditioned by experience and expectations, 
Which means our observations and opinions 
Are always colored by the filters 
Through which we view the world. 
And so where I might see a continent 
Torn apart by dissension, 
You might see a fish, or a horse, running free,
Or something else altogether.
Which is why I paint without intention 
And allow the painting to shape itself 
On the chance it might have different messages 
For different viewers.
