  • One strand at a time,
    one drop at a time,
    one step at a time.

    One dream,
    one insight,
    one move,
    one thought
    at a time.

    We arrive
    where we already are
    and see
    what we have neglected to see.

    And this beauty
    is almost
    too much,
    too much.
