Normality – A Rambling

What is normality
But an illusion
Shared by many
Yet not by all
A manipulation
Of reality
Of A reality
Scattered amongst equals
With significance
Accepted
Not questioned
Except by
One

But then isn’t it that one
That makes normal possible
Like a line of straightness
Where the line
Only seems straight
Only survives
As a result of the kink
A curve
Where without that bend
There would be
No straight
Nothing more

And so too without abnormality
Without that ‘one ‘
Can there be normal?
Without delusion
Can reality prevail?
Without the mask
What really is there
The possibilities
Swimming in a sea
An ocean
Of possibilities
On the spectrums of odd
Weighed in the scales of reason

Lives being lived
Unfolding in the rainbow
The wavelengths of colour
Each as precious as the next
Refracted through a prism
To bend light
Curving whiteness
To bring brilliance
All realities warped
In hues; in shades
Of colour
For maybe everything is normal
Or maybe normality just doesn’t exist

Thursday

Were it but a different day
A Monday full of hope with her new beginnings
Or Tuesday where inspiration has the edge
Even a Wednesday in the knowledge of week half done
Or a Friday proffering excited anticipation for the morrow
Were it but a Saturday; a day of action and adventure
Or resplendent Sunday relaxing in the balmy weekend throes
Were it yet any of this
But nay it is a Thursday
Neither here nor there but stuck somewhere in between

The End

Will the words ever cease
Will the notes ever dry
Or the stars fall right out
Of the heavens and sky

Will the sun fail to rise
Will moon end its reign
Or the world stop revolving
On its axis again

Will the waves lull their lapping
Will the winds calm not blow
Or the birds fall to silence
Or the trees never grow

Will these things ever happen
Will our planet decease
Or universe disappear
Or time even cease

And in wondering these questions
And thinking them through
There’s one thing for certain that
We won’t know if they do

So why consider and contemplate
Or muse in such a way
When our time could be spent making
The most of our days

Yet I think on reflection that
We’d all like to know
When the end will be nigh so
We can up sticks and go

Grace

Grace
The edification of morality
In serene beauty
Embellishing propriety
In consonance with decorum
Elegance and finesse
That blesses the world
With a disposition of generosity
From a charmed sanctuary within

Contemplation

Taking the space to contemplate
A brief moment in time
To stop!
Not in purposeful meditation
But to pause;
To consider;
To think
Amidst the busyness of the day
Ahead the pile of ironing
The burgeoning debate
The critical evaluation of an overdue essay
And mass of backdated reading
Pressing marketing deadlines;
School letters;
Children’s demands
Appointments;
Administration;
The mundane
To stop!
And to ponder
To imagine that if the world stopped
If the last breath left my soul and the final beat pulsed through my heart
So that life itself vanished in this moment
What would my legacy be?
What footprint would I have left in the sand?
What difference would I have made?
And with that thought;
That contemplation;
Momentum returns
With a new urgency
