microscopic sight

I like to look at single-celled creatures in a microscope. The cilia of a paramecium, the whip-like flagellations of euglena, the Norelco display of the rotifer. I drank them all in like a drop of water on a slide.

I think sometimes that we're all surrounded by amazing sights and sounds, if we can but focus.
