At the Beginning of a New Beginning

Sometimes the exact science of knowing
is left in the desert with no way out.

Daybreak is here with the possibility
of being more than a measurement.

Beasts, food, and foes come and go
as we, learning to call the things we see,

grapple with intangible life:
when in the beginning all words

were shaped in the mouth for the first time,
and we danced to hear the air sing.

    That was incredible. Creating so much imagery with so few words. I myself am trying to get that notion of exact knowing to stay in that desert forever. Great stuff
