“Beginnings,” Friend, Feb. 1989, 5


A dot is a beginning.

From it lines go out

To form a square or, spinning,

Turn around, about,

Until it is a circle.

A line is a beginning

Of a word or two.

The lines go up, around, or down

In patterns old and new-

and then you have a thought.

A thought is a beginning.

The beginning of a way

To make a better world.

Beginning with today …

A dot! A line! Why not?
