Kapaho Tide Pools on the Big Island
When the ebbing tide retreats
Along the rocky shoreline,
It leaves a trail of tidal pools
In a short-lived galaxy.
Each microcosmic planet
A complete society.
A simple kind mirror
To reflect upon our own.
All the busy little creatures
Chasing out their destinies.
Living in their pools,
They soon forget about the sea…
— Neil Peart, “Tide Pools”
This is on the east side of the island, in Puna, Hawaii.
Or, maybe, it’s a shot of… the Universe.
