Small Sounds – by John Bullitt
The ear is a doorway to Awe. The little everyday sounds that we take for granted can, with a slight shift in attention, context, speed, or emphasis, reveal hidden layers of deep meaning and great beauty.
Symphony of Science – ‘Our Place in the Cosmos’ (ft. Sagan, Dawkins, Kaku, Jastrow)
A trunk by itself is nothing
Concentric circles locked in place
Big zeros and little zeros
Marking time, polarizing space
But add branches, add a few twigs
Limbs reaching out, gathering in
And the trunk packs for a journey
Birds come, rain falls, sunlight tarries
Mother Gaia knows the way home:
Tower arising from Earth’s dark
Citadel built from last night’s rain
Her leafy arms lift to the sky
How can this be asks the raven
Earth and sky walking the same road,
Building a way for each other?
And bright wings rise: dark greeting light.
