The compass reveals desire
course that moves the heart
as seashore surge seethes
wind thru leaves breathes
emotion as magnetic field
orients direction, torques
feelings, bends inclination
draws closer earth’s breast
turns day, animates birds
to sing, fills branches, colors
sound, enclosing line limits
logical substance perimeters
keep our feet on the ground.
