MOON SHELL

"No man is an island," said John Donne.
I believe we are all islands- in a common sea...


Solitude, says the moon shell.
Center-down, says the Quaker saints.
To the possession of the self the way is inward,
says Plotinus.
The cell of self-knowledge is the stall in which
the pilgrim must be reborn,
says St. Catherine of Siena.
