The mathematician surmises the curve
separating sky and sea
and he declares

The earth is round

The islander witnesses the rendezvous
joining a weary sun and the Pacific
and she declares

This spectacle is divine

The mariner scans the skyline
demarcating water and the heavens
and he hopes

Our land is approaching

I behold your newborn eyes
adapting from a fluid world to lands yet unseen
and I testify

Life begins anew


For Rocco Bonifacio Senelly, born on February 17, 2015.  Welcome to Gaia, dear grandson.
