Why anything?

Refracted

by ladypalerider

So it would seem, that we only think we know what we know.

How do we know that the knowledge we possess is true? Is it because that's just what we're taught? How do you know that a horse is a horse? Perhaps he is a crow. Perhaps I am a tree.

The mirror shows a reflection. But where is the real you?

The sunlight beams through the window, but the glass is cold to the touch. A quarter of an inch separating two entirely different climates. How thin must the veil between worlds be?

There is magic all around us. But you must look for it.

The tears would fall from my eyes as the rain falls from heaven. My soul tarnished, my spirit fractured. In the refracted light I saw a broken rainbow. In that I found the answers and none at all

Loved how you got our minds thinking, and the way you put the words...amazing. It makes up for so short a story.

@bernardtwindwil I really appreciate the comment! This is the best critique I've gotten on my work so far! I wanted to make the reader really think for themselves, and not to just believe what they're told

Your questions, while being provocative, are also a good literary technique. It causes the reader to pause and ponder. Once you have the reader trying to answer, you have them. Your metaphorical use of light is clever and present an excellent symbolism. You presented a theme that seems impenetrable by light. And yet light is your metaphor. Brilliant light if it is real. Great piece.

@ladypalerider This is very good. How you worded this whole story, is very good. You make us think. What if.... what just automatically makes it the way it is?
