Day 9 of Blogging from A to Z. Today’s letter is I
I is for Id, the Isle of I.
Id, unaware struts
thinking it stands all alone
a singular isle
such wrong conceit self
centered thought denies that earth
revolves round the sun
We are islands. But just as the sea laps the shore, and the isle continues into the sea, we are all an integral part of each other. The very air between us is as alive as we are as we move through it – from earth to the farthest reach of space.
