Bug’s Eye View

Nature will bear the closest inspection. She
Invites us to lay our eyes level with her
Smallest leaf, and take an insect view of its
Plain.
—Thoreau

The universe is a continuous web.
Touch it at any point and the whole web quivers…

…At my touch the wild braid of creation trembles.
