when the earth
around the bend
of the sun,
gold melts into me;
a river in the night.
In the beginning,
forces pull me in a continental drift to a convergent boundary,
creating earthquakes and volcanoes as I journey through.
Growing and dying at once, I become both old and new.
My heart burns from the lava in an unfought fight,
created between the Ocean and Moon at night.
In the end,
I am the love the moon walks down to the stream and valley floors,
the Ocean, finally being touched like it’s never been touched before.
