Sailing in the Sea of Intelligence



Sailing in the Sea of Intelligence

I think

Of how flocks can fly
as if they were one being

Of how the brain can fix itself
and even assign
new jobs –
oh, and spiders, too.

Of how I can make things move
by thinking,
of how my heart beats

Of how the cat knows
an earthquake’s coming

Of the simultaneity
of distant events

Of how
trees and refrigerators
and viruses and quartz crystals
and sub-atomic particles
can act intelligently

Of how the universe
is music
Of how you and I
and the spider
are the concert master

Of how thinking of these things
is to love again.
