View on Earth (“Sono Dio” Series, no.6) – PianoTweet no. 118 (replay)

(text written on April 28th 2011)

On my computer’s desktop
there’s that famous picture of
Planet Earth.
Taken by an astronaut.
You probably know it.

It’s our place.
It’s a jewel that no man or woman could have invented.
It’s an invention.
Of intelligence and love.
And these two are present in us all.

When I look at that picture
I always feel a kind of a tear.
A tear for joy.
As if we all – me too – have taken part in creating it.
