Remember that there’s more than greets the light
of the sun with appreciation for
the gift of vision. For instance, we might
consider pond algae. For it, what more
is the sun than a tool that allows
carbon dioxide to be turned to food
(and merely as a wast-product, endows
the world with oxygen)? It may seem crude
to think of light reduced to less than it
is, but it’s a matter of point of view.
Is there more than we perceive? Are we fit
to claim wisdom, or are we “algae” too?
Of basing things on sight, we’re much too fond
Besides the things we see, there’s what’s beyond.
