Cycles 01/21/2012

Cycles of the earth

Cycles of the moon

Cycles of my body

And of our love

Summer’s heat burns us

But keeps us longing for the glow

Winter’s kiss freezes

Like your icy stare

Fall brings death

Like my body growing old

No longer green

Unable to produce a bloom

We spin through our lives

Unable to stop the orbit

Unable to control the changes

That breathe us into life

And out of love
