Sometimes We Share by Kenneth Gurney

Sometimes we share
a cup of starry nights
and drink the empathy
of the ancient buffalo herds
that thundered the world
and channeled a waking
of distinctions
between theory and practice
and a spirit-world-substance
that we label friendship
and reshape a little
through mathematics
to form such a biology
that the knowledge of oneness
is contained in a song
that flocking birds follow
on their semiannual migrations.

Bio: Kenneth P. Gurney lives in Albuquerque, NM, USA with his beloved Dianne. His latest collection of poems is Curvature of a Fluid Spine. To learn more visit
