The circumstance of truth
holds it steady, gives symmetry
until broken by careless thought
kicked across a landscape
of actions, yet simplest details
preserve it, as capturing
the movement of air or water
produces usable energy
veritable revelation for life
clouds carried by sea winds
turn inland, cross virgin woods
absorb more oxygen atoms
bond molecules hydrogenated
wetter as they mix and move
heavier until they fall as rain.
