Colors in Space

The cat’s eye in the constellation may appear in pink and green
or in tones of beige and aquamarine
What’s blue is really blue we just might not be able to see it.
The photo in place of a lens,
a mirror that collects light
in black and white.
Collect light
from the human eye.
Combine the images.
Create a purpose,
like bringing out a chemical or
improving light and dark.
We seek but we don’t make this,
the colors are real.

*Found poem: “Colors in Space” NYT June 18, 2013
