Theme: Reality

Reality as Belief

It’s scientists speak of ‘The Universe’,
when at no single moment is it there

except as a concept, there to rehearse

in clarity of form, lighter than air;

in the blink of an eye what’s present is past.

The trick of permanence is in the mind.
It is there everything‘s identified,

matter in analysis refined

as immutable concept reified,

in all its categories, class and kind.

Our view of the world so vast in appraisal
proceeds in the mind representative;

the thrill of anticipation owes all

to the conjuring imaginative

of forms and actions, believed in as real.


Light years away is as present in concept

as today on earth, the basis of belief

that formulates its own real world, adept

to the fringes of space and time, as if

proof, yielding reality all accept.
