De Rerun Natura ~ Lucretius (50 BC)
|Between Space and Time|
Mark Tobey (1965)
Fair Use Principles
How do we fathom the laws of being
and of nothingness, the movement of atoms,
the meaning of music, the salt of the sea?
Safer to call it random, even the moon.
Even you, who found your way blindfolded,
belong to continuous time;
you are folding infinity seven times
but will not allow the sky to know your name.
Perhaps, this is not what you expected,
this falling into an unplanned experiment,
no more a mote in a wayward beam of light;
nor did I foresee the tremble of motion,
but I knew enough to grasp your hand
in collision: an act of will determined love.
