Beguiling Deception (May 2012)

The color of a cat’s eye

The images vivid in this inner view

Swirling up amid the blue



I sense the layers

Accruing over time

One over another

Each surrounding a tiny kernel of truth

The nacre of falseness

A false pearl


And so these appear as I work

Arising from my unconscious

One by one

Each now a lovely gift


The depths to plumb

Sorting false from true

Like bubbles bursting

Finally nuggets rest clear

Exactly where I am
