Transparency reveals contradictions
coherent interactions of opposites
many themes sounded, tried, manifest
matter hurled, most diverse, extreme
complement, my life an open book
we navigate a course, periods of heat
draught, juxtapose, torrents of rain
hurricanes, blizzards of cold, defense
against the elements, intense foliage
nested green, long gentle days cease
as leaves fall, our joys glimpse eternity
our despair prays to end it all, our many
lives finally resolve, where they began
returning to their center, not a port of call.
