The tiny world of ants from the ground up
Where, every rock; Kilimanjaro’s table top.
Every drop of water; life-giving Brahmaputra,
Every speck of dust; the ruddy cliffs of Petra,
Every swaying leaf, umbrellas of the sky,
Every sound of vegetation, nature’s hi-fi,
Every root, columns in Solomon’s temple,
Every sound, chimes from Mingun’s bell,
Every breeze; wind on Mount Washington,
Ants, a living theater of determination.
