tides bring truth

Truth is an ocean that evaporates,
and from clouds comes to us
drop by drop getting us wet,
none the less as if we jumped in.

For those who keep themselves dry
an umbrella seems more reasonable
than boarding the boat which crosses
to another part of a shared shore.

Weather shows patterns to find
examples of awareness attracting
attention to detail manipulation
personalizing styles of seasonal change.

Vehicles extend exploration to find
points of no return allow the new
to seem more recognizable
as bodies flowing with the same ocean.

It is better to be skeptical than to be gullible. It is safer to question everything first
before believing anything.

Truth is based on basic ideas. Basic ideas have no bases. They are the bases.

Truth is not relevant. Reality is more apparent than you think.

In my opinion, truth is how we see things we see or don't see. Reality is what we see or don't see. However, these definitions can be interchanged. It all depends on what you mean by truth and what you mean by reality.

Realizing that we see reality (or what we see) with our eyes and minds, we can say that truth depends on our ideas, concepts, beliefs, experiences, and insights.

Therefore there is only truth or falsehood in our minds. Reality is there whether we like it or not.

Furthermore, there is no such thing as absolute truth. Only absolute reality. These statement are based on my definitions.

I am improvising.

Your riffs gave me insight as to why the struggle with reality gets so many defensive about their truth. Thanks for your concern with balance. As parents, dealing with skeptical questions are us. Have you heard they took the word gullible out ot the dictionary?

I've never been able to escape the truth of being.

Bradford, this is nice... I like it.

Thank you for visiting my blog; hope you'll return!

Travis, I tried to... but wherever I go, there I am, so there's no escaping...

This is a brilliant write. It seems pointless to dive into any debate about truth, but I love the imagery in this poem.
