Visiting an ant’s world

Imperial Point
I step up to the rim
Take out the camera
And begin to snap
In the failing sunlight

When it’s no longer possible
To get an image
With a hand-held camera
I sit down
And bask in the immensity

It comes to me
What it must feel like
To live in an ant’s world

If an ant could sit
At the edge of its world
And ponder
Its own

Point Imperial
The Grand Canyon
North Rim
