Delusion

From Annette Alaine, a poem worthy of being read. I love the message of it, and I wanted it to have wider readership.

In Transition

We are myopic creatures~

believing this little niche we occupy is the universe.

We fail to look up often enough,

at the black sky at night and recalibrate,

we stand at the edge of the continent,

waves lapping at our feet,

fixing our eyes on the illusion of the horizon,

forgetting we are perched on the fragile crust

of a pulsing orb of energy.

No, we humans arrogantly believe

the universe bows down to us.

About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

    And that is why I like Sci Fi – we can’t believe we are the only intelligent beings in the vast amount of space… can we?
