That - Poem by Douglas Scotney
Naturally, life emerged out of that.
It set about seeking content.
It eventually thought
other life forms
must emerge from that,
elsewhere if not here.
Joseph Turner sought content.
He also saw life in that.
What grew large within his thought
was the suggestion of forms
that might come of that
where, naturally, elsewhere is here.
