When I look down
from the airplane window

I see a map

the biggest map on earth

that i haven't seen before

    Indeed. It's great to see something real out of the picture that was constructed in our minds by mere illustration. It's a simple poem with very simple words yet with a sense that's so true....When I was riding a plane, I had this realization that the land is so small the water can swipe us all away in a minute.
