Worlds I’ll Never Know

Near Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, Utah, United States of America
There are world’s I’ll never know
Existing all around me

My eyes, they cannot see
The fine details
In just a narrow band
Of frequencies

I cannot sense
The low bass rumble
Of elephants just talking

Nor hear the song
The bats all sing
To find their way in darkness

While time, it flows
Much too fast
Or all too slow to notice

With all my tech
And all my art
I’m an explorer of such worlds

But for every world
Which I’ve discovered
A million more unknown
