Only if you can Imagine

“A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ~Albert Einstein

“Imagination is more important than knowledge”~Albert Einstein


Only if you can Imagine…

Holding it, I knew the truth.

It is a fossilized clam from time before.

You cannot tell me it isn’t.

It can not speak but shouts,” Look here!”

Many will scoff but most care not.

I want to know. “How did you find me?”

I just looked and there you were.

Seeing can be so easy when you look.

I must show the children.

Uncalloused minds want to touch.

Trust me, it IS real.

We want to know, don’t we?

Scientists will always question.

Artists never fail to see.

Children embrace curiosity.

Don’t talk to me unless you will listen.
