the sky alight, soft focused through night
turning galaxies give rise to universe
it opens up
to take me in
to take me home
into the sea

my epic birth
this time around
landed me this place
to seek out soul
to shine into eyes

this realm of humans
of children playing roles
so sweetly forgotten
and so sharply turning on their hearts
to keep on and on

it steals my experience
and binds me
like salt circles left by our passing
these markers of time
these twists
