    Shades of Optical Illusion

    The rusty sands flowed from above
    In capture of the eye.
    Torrential, like vermillion snow –
    A mural’s cloak of sky.

    Yet rise, they did, like aspect turned
    Upright from flattened ground;
    My view through picture’s focused frame,
    Now tweaked of logic’s bound.

    In facets, angular offset,
    They met at highest sway
    And formed a scalloped line of peak,
    Dividing night and day.

    I would have climbed it readily
    But brushes flew on sunny side.
    I feared the feign of gravity
    And drawing to the darkened side.

    And to this day, in memory kept,
    Are diametric shades of “why”
    That left upon the shifting grains
    Have much, if questioned, to belie.
