The word: Wormhole

Einstein and worms.
Thoughts about passages through time and space.

Moving through a universe of trees marked by time, I think of feasting worms, dining and seeking shelter.

And of Einstein, his thoughts a hive beyond the imagination, science applied.

I admire the simplicity of the physical wormhole
in the apple or pear that I occasionally
share with a small traveler, whose trace is a trace.

The trace tells me of a journey, not just of tasting but of passing through a sweet, tangy world, taking only what was needed, leaving the rest for me.

Einstein tells me, as best I can tell, that all of this is bigger, more fantastic, more unknowable than how the worm that found its way to my red apple.

The word: Voyage

The thing about the voyage
is that I was in it before knowing where I was headed
and where it would end.

Port and calm were promises. And premises.

Reality was lurching from squall to squall.
Rough seas would explode. Unannounced,
unwelcome meteors of unease and shock.

How could I or anyone prepare for the voyage?

Man overboard. Then woman. Then others.
Swirling away, sinking, returning as memories,
but gone.

As a child, I thought a long voyage took me where I wanted to go.
Instead, voyages take me where they are headed.
I follow along.
