A Poem with a Book Review!
This things are said in our spiritual books. You define it very well
I love the last stanza! I noticed the lack of prompt beforehand and was a bit sad for a second that you hadn’t included one but was relieved to find it after the poem. I think it’s ok either place. Also! I’ve read Project Hail Mary, but my husband is listening to it now and I’m catching snippets of it. It was already on my mind while reading the poem and fun to see it as the inspiration!
Lovely poem. I’m fascinated by the Overview Effect. I wrote a piece about it on the blog (you can find it here: https://www.practicespace.blog/p/on-vastness), but at the time I didn’t know it had a name. It’s a totally fascinating change of perspective and a very calming exercise.
Love this poem + book review format! Adding Project Hail Mary to my reading list!! 📚🐛🪐
