It Must Begin With

And who  knows for sure when reality fades into fantasy 
What begins the sylvan slide, something so beautiful
 you question the state of being true.
Everything is brighter, bolder more perfect

on the darker side. things are unspeakably grotesque
evilly creepy, clawed with frightening wings that flap
across your dreams to haunt you.

Nature itself  is fantasy, its breathtaking flowers
stars, shells,  magnificent trees and yet it also has
 the most ugly lizards, snakes spiders and  insects to terrify
Because we need fantasy to understand  our true selves.

    You went very deep on this one. Two sides to every coin; fantasy and reality, beauty and ugliness, good and evil, truth and lies.

    Your words are always so wise, Carrie: Now that I think of it I do admire even the ugly and harmful reptiles and spiders. They have their fascinating side as well. I have lived side by side with venomous life forms and never been harmed...I never killed them just because they were dangerous and always respected their space. a good pay-off.

    Yes........there is a dark side, and a bright side to all that is natural, it is in our perception what we think of as beautiful, or frightening..... A deep look into ourselves can be sometimes a scary thing! :)

    So well related Suz and the perspective alluded to is perfect because the understanding of it all is where reality lies---funny I could say lies our truths. Mail
