Every poem has been written before
at least fifteen times.
Every song
sung better.

The Neanderthals discovered caves
already painted with the story of their lives.
They invented fire
over and over again.

And you & I
whisper the same sweet nothings
we were born with.

Glasswork by Chihully in Tacoma

Infinity pushed

by finite power until

time and space unite!



Filter shades hope, trust
history of the good news:
JOY to humankind!
