From the author: A whimsical poem about possibilities

It’s not easy to be born as a human being. – Buddha Shakyamuni


I like living on a planet

Next I might try a comet

or a neutron star


I like being human

Next I might try bumblebee

or broad leaf fern


I’ve been one thing at a time

But I’d like to try

being everything everyone everywhere

all at once
