Fold up the charts.
Close the guidebooks
And the scrolls
Of information.
Turn the engines off.
Let the laptop
Sleep.
Let your wristwatch
Stop.
Let plans and speculations
And the names of things
Go-

Pick up stone
And hold it in your hand;
This is the history
Of the world –

Watch the animal of the light
Always moving away
Across the land
In its own time –

And when the darkness comes
Welcome it
For it makes you think
And dream
