Tell us. planet
about the joys and throes
each day bring.
We accept the sheer impossibility
of taking it all in.
Ships crossing your great oceans,
trains thundering through tunnels,
planes heading upwards from
the very tip of a mighty mountain,
rags and riches,
laughter and sorrow,
one baby welcomed to the world,
another brutally murdered...
...two lovers in the midst of ecstasy,
another couple breaking up,
man and his ideas
in an ever ongoing struggle.
Who's to get the upper hand?
We are all dying.
We are all being born.
And the desert
embraces the luscious garden.
By midnight this year
will have no more tales to tell.
Those we couldn't take in
we leave to our boundless human imagination,
containing the image of peace and love.
