What if Wednesday : Spring March 25 2015

What if Spring 1

What if it was Spring, but the scene outside your window disagreed ?

Would your heart freeze down to your knees ?

Would you sneeze in disbelief ?

……..or shake your head in frustration

and mock grief ……………………..


Reality snows

down on our heads blanketing

perception white noise




on our heads


What if Spring 2

Would you remember  that All Mass Media Constructs …………….Reality ?

Reality Shifts

perception bends freezes your

beliefs falling fast

What if Spring 2 mdf

Would colours go mute turning monochrome en mass –

as a new medium  constructs

Reality ?

What if Spring 4

An antique  world from another time  & memory emerges –

old winter stained and toned by recollections……

do you feel younger or older now ?


Reality’s bones

creak going down – down into


What if Spring 3

What if it was Spring, but the scene outside your window disagreed ?

perception bends, freezes your

beliefs –


Reality becomes white noise



on our heads



What if Spring 5

Do you take photographs ?

Bending perception and  constructing digital reality

into gentle winter fantasy

that freezes beliefs –

What if it was Spring ?

What if Spring 5 mdf

  1. I am sorry it does not look like spring in your world! But thinks for sharing your reality.

      It is one step forward two and three quarter steps back – land on your backside in the snow. 😀
      We should be rid of most of it with a gradual melt by now, but the persistent cold and fluctuating range just means it goes and circles back for a surprise booga-booga.

      Many thanks for dropping by and commenting. It is much appreciated. 🙂

  3. Manipulation of reality is a recurring theme of mine. I’m fascinated by the ease and speed with which intelligent, civilised societies and sometimes cultures can come to accept as normal that which was previously understood to be (and remains) utterly absurd.

      Our ability to imagine what is not is both one of our great strengths and great weakness. It allows us to problem solve and adapt to new situations and to achieve potential goals. It can also lock us in denial of eventual outcomes ( climate change deniers and anti-vaxxers) or play on our fears of the Other.

      The power of various media to transmit a world view that conveys values, beliefs & ideologies combines all to readily with the more negative aspects our ability to imagine alternative realities.
