From the beginning we pursue
the elusive fragments of infinity.
We start by counting pebbles
and apples and sticks.

We try to capture them in paper.
They still run free and we follow them
as we follow fading comets.

They whisper to us
and we construct,
as dreaming children,
cities and ships,
rockets, temples,
theories, theologies,
microscopes, telescopes,
headaches and wonders
to touch them for a second.
And they laugh amused and watching.
For they, since we are born,
are born within us.
