Daily missive for Wednesday the 5th of June~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Wednesday the 5th of June

Is anything real
Do my eyes see what is there
Are the particles of light
Striking the retina
Transformative
The sense they make
Purely mine
Do we see by convention
Is the world just an invention
Of the imagination
Everything seen,
After the fact
Everything done
Follows an instruction
Sometimes known
Sometimes not
Perhaps all conscious thought
Is second hand
Is anything real
Unseen in the immediate
How do we know when
To fill in the spaces
Between things
With just enough
Information to share
An experience
We seem to agree
Is much the same for
You as it is for me
Unless we factor in
Perspective
Irrespective of position
Everything seen
Is observed
From the difference
In points of view
Which are not the same
For me
As they are for you
What a farrago
Of confusion
Perception is illusion
Nothing is real
Without agreement
Consensual thinking
A required standard
Which is disappointing
As the familiar dressed
In strange disguises
Is what makes for intrigue
The unique ingenuity
Of personhood
And individuality
