Song For Anna
I went around
Looking for carnations.
I couldn’t find any.
Then it struck me
That today probably
Isn’t for flowers,
But simply for this
Little poem for you
Written on a delicate
Page of sunlight.
“Astonishing! Everything is intelligent.” - Pythagoras
Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, He said.
And the minds of creation in polyphony chorused agreement.
Then in the name of all that He created God formed you and me.
In His image He formed us; in His image of land, sea, sky;
Of earth and rock, of flora and fauna, devas and angels;
In His image before the birth of faces He designed us.
So do you and I love now the feel of stone that is our skin.
