the way it works (around me)

I was taught
that the world
is round

that it spins

and journeys
through the vastness
of space

right around the sun

then back
never stopping
in that continuous journey

and I’m sure
that’s true

I mean
I know
that it’s true

when I dream
all of the universe
moves around


the sun comes up
goes down
while I …
am still right here

when I dream
I know
the way the cosmos
really works


Poem #592 from a series of poems drawn from the imagination and collected as: a Bachelard reverie.

Success! You're on the list.
