Divide

prompt: Divide

Time zones: I write this March 2 prompt at 11.42 a.m. in the morning, 3rd March.

Hello, people of the past

Seas: where the gods scooped up the earth, leaving tunnels all over their playground, buckets of sand and rain descended from heaven,

A ship appearing over the horizon, the physical curvature of the earth

what’s exotic is just elusive from                   sight;

Barriers: language, as much as it binds us to meaning,                                    binds us together;

cultures:

divide us unalike;

scattered like peas all over the Earth,                               sons of Babylon, daughters of the sea,

crawling with amphibian feet

from birth waters

Mathematically, d  i  v  i  d  e a number and the a graph is compressed; divide the occurrences by the possibilities, and you get a chance.

Give me a chance to cross the seas, language, cultures for you,

7000 kilometres yet 10 steps away.
