Reflections in a pool of water
bring heaven down to earth,
Fragments of blue sky
hover over cobblestones.
Dark walls of a building
sink down upside down,
annihilating tangible reality.
A patchwork quilt of paving stones
reflects the luminescent light of day,
frames that topsy turvy world
where what is real
merges with illusion.

Lovely poem, great foto, and a sobering insight— reality, illusion, the distinction ultimately indiscernible, unknowable? Is that truth what the liars rely on to peddle their lies? Signorelli saw it all… Sending love and hugs, margaret
