(a snapshot of a wandering mind)
The circle is complete Sitting outside after class one day
Will become the sunlight Just letting my mind wander
Plants and fungi I was watching the sunlight
Will eventually return to the earth Stream through some branches
The light that I am I thought of it hitting the grass
Envisioning further Visualized the grass turning
I became the sunlight That sunlight, that photo energy
Transferred to me Into energy for itself to use.
Converting to energy The grass became the sunlight.
I envisioned the meal In my mind’s eye
As I ate I felt a change A cow bent her head to graze
Awaits me on the table As the grass’s energy
A hamburger transformed within the cow
The cow became the sunlight
I had just left a class in Botany
. We were discussing how plants make food out of light
and how they transform the energy. My mind just wandered taking it to the next level of how energy moves up the chain of life
. It is the same energy just flowing around in a neverending circle.(of course, this is assuming that no energy is used up in the conversion. We all know that isn't the case since most life is wasteful
with regards to energy use, but that is another node...)
We are ALL sunlight transformed!
