Reflections on Immensity
Countless veins pulse through each leaf
and thousands of leaves cover some trees.
In a forest how many trees exist?
Infinity bewilders me.
Thousands of droplets make every wave
and millions of waves comprise most seas.
In an ocean how many drops persist?
Eternity erases me.
Clusters of molecules comprise each cell
and trillions of cells create some conscious beings.
How much life has consciousness?
We breathe unknowing.
