"Voyaging through strange seas of thought, alone ..." William Wordsworth

Imagine.

Chatham, Marshall Ridge, 2001



OFTEN I IMAGINE the EARTH

Often I imagine the earth
through the eyes of the atoms we’re made of—
atoms, peculiar
atoms everywhere—
no me, no you, no opinions,
no beginning, no middle, no end,
soaring together like those
ancient Chinese birds
hatched miraculously with only one wing,
helping each other fly home.

Dan Gerber
