Our Spinning Rock

Gravity (and Wonder)

Floating Sequence’  2012 Amy Joy Watson

Time measured in rotations,

the scale of our days

Shadows cast as it spins

the course of lives drawn

Meteors course through space

hit one another

in brash discourteous movement,

energy dispersed

into cosmic blackness

We, beings, pulled

invariably to the earth

despite our dreams

Balloons of possibility rise,

float

until perishing reality

imposes its evitable power

The lunar stretch

pulls upon the amniotic wonder,

the warp of lives in time

Mass deliberation holds all

to the centre

whimsical flutters to left and right,s

mere caprices in life’s index

The whole

so much larger

than the one
