  1. Thanks — with the idea that splitting can be destruction, I guess. Glad I happened on your site.

  2. I think of an atom — with the enduring stateliness of nature behind it…


    If beliefs were atoms we were immune
    from despair — the mystery of the living world
    would reveal all in the rushing of water, the vapors
    from a forest floor, even a growing wildfire
    blackening the souls of trees, so wild and merciless,
    just an excited wonder sweeping us to the great
    joining/unjoining, throats become hoarse
    singing our pressure waves of joy.
