The nature of things

Words can’t explain it:

Sky, tree, river, valley, mountain.

I pen letters in packages

Of three, four, five, six, seven,

Yet they fail to adequately capture


A universe that lies within

Stars, soil, atoms, quarks,

Things yet to be uncovered.

But the insufficiency of language

Will not prevent me

From attempting to express

The beauty and connectedness

In the world.
