Spectra

I dream I ride the cosmic rays – I am a pulse of energy,

I dream of the music of radio waves the quasars sing to me.

But in matter are bogged down my thoughts and mind,

And even to a narrow spectrum am I blind.

Though from the red to violet wavelengths I can see

I focus on “Are you browner or blacker than me?!”

I am deaf to the nuances of ultrasonics that

Are so clear to sea- mammal, dog and bat.

And astronomers desperately search for another earth

When we’ve barely plumbed the ocean that gave us birth!

On differences and wars we spend effort and thought

When there is still so much to understand, unsought!

I hope one day I shall merge with my robots and see

All the colors of the Universe and all its majesty!
