Paramecium move through swirling immensities
while amoebas engulf diamond-shaped beings
Hydras drift in fluids they sacrcely see
while ciliates whip like frenzied spermatozoa
& algae suck up solar energy
The stuff of science fiction
or tales from a planet far away?
No – just small parts of a miracle
the sea moves in us even this day
Hear the author read this poem.

||We live in a world of magic.
||Yeah, and comprehend on a fraction of its beauty.
||. . . or terror. All our notions are petty against the backdrop of space and time.
