Real Surreal

watch the floor
beneath the skylight
the shadows jumping
flashing bright

know it's clouds
up in the sky
flitting (and flying by)

here we see shadows
and sunny patches

not much else besides
our vision is practical
but a little surreal

we've seen it before
but never quite noticed

among mossy branches
shapes and shadows

something in a nightmare
twisted shapes with
awful twisted meanings

we dare not rest our case
when things are so unclear
unreal but real surreal
