This hemisphere
Lurches towards
The unbalanced time of darkness
spinning spinning off center
Ah, to settle into low breathing quiet
as bears and bumblebees
turtles and toads do
To persist immobile and still until spring

For now
Let us bow our heads
Peek towards
the southern bowl of the earth
Opening opening
To the brilliant angle of sunlight
that looks forward to a warm January

Let’s meet in the middle
At the wide belly of our third planet from the sun
Where daylight and darkness meet
at the imaginary boundary

Mark this time with ceremony
In slow deliberative circumference
Along this imaginary boundary
Walk together
Listening listening
To the peaceable music of
The earths heartbeat.
