Would it matter?

would it matter

if the rising sun was purple

the sinking moon amber

if what we cried were not salted tears

but only plain water

would it matter

if meadows were black and storms mellow

if elephants chirped and squirrels bellowed

if lions were striped and zebras spotted

if we walked backward to reach ahead

would it matter

if trees were white

and the clouds raining down on them green

if day started at dusk and

night tiptoed at dawn

would it matter

if life started when we died

and ceased to be

with the birth of a child

would it matter?

would it?

  1. You describe and up-side-down world for sure. Unfortunately things that should matter are of no concern to far too many people these days. We’ve lost empathy and much that matters is mere self gratification.


    1. Thank you very much. I am always very peculiar; almost up to the point of an OCD, about the pictures that follow by posts. That also proves you notice a great deal. Super!


  2. Merlin, the wizzzzard, … was born in the future, and lived a reverse life (I was told) — you could ask him … if he’s already born in this epoch 🙂 [your articles are always a great read — thank you]


  3. It really doesn’t when you reach “that” state where you realise it’s all the exact same. Now getting “there” is an altogether different matter! 🙂
    Lovely write, liked your string of thought and the words you’ve woven!
