I’m still plugging away at my novel. Writing some rough notes about what I want a character to say I realized they work as a kind of poem. As the novel may or not may not ever reach a conclusion I’ll post the poem here (the haiga at the end was created some years ago).
To visualize the sphere of the planet –
the mighty oceans, the sprawling land masses,
the rivers, the grasslands, and the forests,
with the sky arching above it all
revealing in the darkness of the night,
worlds beyond worlds. Galaxies spiraling
out beyond the limits of human sight.
Vast cosmological time stretching
both back and forward into infinity.
The immensity of it all.
The finely tuned harmonics
of quasars and pulsars
vibrating with energy –
and then to return
to the body
here on this piece of Earth.
Now is the time of our being-ness.
The present is where we create the future.
