What Do You See?

I can remember days of lying on my back on the earth.  Just staring at the clouds.   Watching them all roll by.  And visualizing.  Horses.  Butterflies.  Faces in a crowd.  A dove.  Popcorn.  A puppy wagging its tail.

Days of being carefree.  Just drifting in the winds, like the clouds . . .

Come on.  Use your imagination.  What do you see in this cloud?

Neighborhood - Cloud Eagle

I see an Eagle.  Beak open, left wing elevated, claws outstretched.  Coming for its prey.

What do you see?

    1. Hi Ms Julie Whitney and Mr Harold Stearley,

      HaHaHa! Both of you saw an eagle. However, I, being SoundEagle, seem to have some difficulty seeing anything in the clouds.

      There is actually a scientific term for such visual perception, or rather, optical illusion. It is called pareidolia, which is an example of apophenia, the tendency to perceive connections and meaning between unrelated things. It is a psychological phenomenon in which the mind responds to a stimulus, usually an image or a sound, by perceiving a familiar pattern where none exists (e.g. in random data). Common examples are perceived images of animals, faces or objects in cloud formations, the Man in the Moon and the Moon rabbit. You are very welcome to find out much more in my very long and detailed discussions at https://soundeagle.wordpress.com/2017/09/28/optical-illusions/

      May you have a lovely weekend soon!

      1. That is some great information! I love finding connections and meaning in unrelated things and you won’t be surprised to learn that I am superstitious as well. I figure it can’t hurt, and maybe it can help so why not. At the very least, it makes me feel more in control when deep down I know I’m not. 🙂
