Last Strand (Remembering Rachel Carson)

Let it be duly noted
In the margins—

On every grain of sand,
The edge of the sea

Remains elusive
And indefinable,

A boundary whose limits
We could not plumb.


  1. Vassilis,

    it's interesting you mention Rachel Carson when I've just posted a little tribute of my own to a great Cdn environmentalist directly influenced by her.

    Is there a synergy here happening, or what?

  2. @Conrad, synergy indeed--the Greeks had a word for it!
    @WB, sad to think that adjective/noun is right at home nowadays modifying the phrase "irreversible damage"--we're long past the point of no return.
