THE FLOOD

Directions of light, as we draw near
over shifting sub-surfaces, singleness
of migration must be sanctified
life cycles around to multiply and replenish
the moving composition, without which
the whole world would be in darkness
and the heavens weep, as tears of rain
upon the mountains that flood the plains
to wash away those who lack affection.
