Earth

Place of all

That is common

And rare

Familiar

And strange

 

Small plants

Clinging to steep mountains

Luminescent fish

Moving in dark trenches

 

My cat

Whiskers quivering

Scenting morning air

Tasting the dew

 

An Arctic fox

Ears turning

Listening for lemmings

Under the snow

 

At home in this

Our glorious world

Of indigo

And ice
