Because we Sing, Dance, Make Art, Build, Write
It is the way of creatures to be busy doing what creatures do.
Single Cell creatures modulate and pulse,
as they are subjected to the currents of gasses and liquids that contain them
They set the pulse for the larger creatures that envelop them.
Tardigrades feel the pulse, perform slow moving acrobatics,
as they feed, breed and exist in their ever-resilient skins
as they exist in
extreme environments, radiated, cold, full oxygen or no oxygen
Their sensory bristles and spines
Reach out and feel the pulse of their world
Taste its chemicals, see its light
Ants and Bee’s work gather and build,
With systemic organization
They feel the pulse
They make patterns of their paths,
Trailing their chemicals to communicate
For others to follow
They Hum while they work.
They build castles of colonies above, or below ground
Flap their wings
Sing, call, Dance
Migrate through instinctively known patterns.
Perhaps reacting to the magnetic force of Earths Poles,
That pulse and modulate
They find their mates through a Dance,
Or with a well-built decorated nest.
Or Perhaps with a beautiful song,
Then spend their lives in tandem.
They teach their young, to
Sing, Call, Dance
We sing, dance, make art, build, write.
to leave our trails everywhere
in concrete, sound, written words
we pulse and modulate
Art, in abstraction and realism to say things in ways words can only outline
We invented science to create more ways to leave trails
radio, tv, wifi,
We believe our patterns make our history.
It is the way of creatures,
To be busy doing what creatures do,
We modulate and pulse
It is how we
Keep tethered to each other.
And we reach to other species.
Cross each other’s paths for good or ill,
It is what creatures of Earth Do,
As it Modulates and Pulses
surrounded by air and clouds
That move and dance as the Earth spins
And defines its seasons as it rotates
And circles the Sun,
As the Sun
Modulates and Pulses,
Pulls its orbiting and dancing neighbors,
With the force of its gravity
Because We Sing, Dance, Build, Make Art and Write.
