The Most Intelligent, The Most Beautiful...
 
the most
intelligent
the most
beautiful
things
we can imagine
surround us
 
we swim
like blind
fish
among
iridescent
coral
passing through
a world
we neither see
nor understand
 
in air
in water
we swim
somnambulant
through
the vibrant
night
 
Were we to awake
 
    trees would arise
    and offer
    their hands
 
    the very air
    would breathe
    its welcome
 
    the most
    intelligent
    the most
    beautiful
    things
    we can imagine
    are moving
    around us
 
    "Brother!"
    "Sister!"
    they greet us
    and
    call us
    by name.
