Some say, “An ocean storm is
rougher at night.” Some see land
in the horizon and a closer place,

where waves lap the shore. Others
see dark clouds, sailboats on water.
And some, viewing a circle of

bending worshippers, believe
the bugs behind the inner ring might
worship, too. Some say, “The kneeling

rocks can sing. The sky is too blue
to believe. And who’s to know what’s
behind the pink? The moon is

a magnet—the moon who has a smaller
sister.” And yes, upon looking closer,
some say, “She has two.” Some say,

“The queen is calling”—the queen
being a metaphor for anything one
can imagine or dream.
