A Microscopic Drop in the Ocean

Our wide world is just a drop in the ocean,
a punctuation mark in creation.

A zoom lens powers in
with vertigo-inducing speed
from the vast outer void
through space
past planets

 swoops over earthly terrain
to observe the anthill
of a rush hour
city street

lingers over a hair on the head
of a lonely homeless man
focuses on a grain
of sand

hovers over forest  plummets to earth
over trees, plants and animals
insects swarming infesting;
contracts to a single
