A Paradox of Perception

A Paradox of Perception1.jpg
  Things are known as perceived to be, mostly
In the sight - we owe it to the tremendous
Velocity of light to achieve integrity, photons
Simultaneity of comprehension.

The anomaly of sound is an indicator:
The whistle pitch of a passing train affected
Noticeably, the rumble of thunder
Not as it happens but when we hear it.

Likewise, even at the speed of light the world
Is hopelessly fragmented, all hidden or
Rationalized to simultaneous effect: the sun's
Light takes nine minutes to reveal it as it was.

We talk of stars and galaxies light years away
But in our minds they are as present:
In truth, there is in the everyday perception
of objects such a presumption of presence.

What the world is in itself is less than a wave,
But arrange it as it is, the light and sound
Effects, and it assumes the vastness of
The universe, and us as witness.
