Terpsichore

Let it go, the water glinting from the moon said,
For everything of earth and sky must move,

And heaven knew these changes a long time ago,
For karma flows like clouds across the blue.

The one who hurt you’s tattooed with the same wound
And pain too much the same to feel yours too.

For all your yo-yo dancing in the typhoon eye
You still believe in one almighty: light

And can endure its many shadows just to find it
Glorifying like your sight the tired afternoon.

Your true self is the North Star, from where there’s
Only love, aswirl in constant orbit, and too entwined to touch.
