A comparison of the natural rhythms found daily in Nature with the "rhythms" that relationships seem to follow.
Pull Of The Moon
|by John Selfridge|
|Two souls drift, and move together, apart
As the pull of the moon on the tides bring the sea up on the beach
it also brings you into reach
Only to pull you away again
With a power too great to comprehend
And the sun draws the flower into its own warm light
Causing petals to open and catch the rays
As I'm drawn to you in some haunting way
In thought and form I find your light
And bask in warmth
Fires glowing embers fade, and wane
But do not die with patience, caring
Enough to turn one luminous coal
Into a raging blaze between lost souls
Pushing back the velvet night
Brilliant circle of fickle light
As with love that flickers, fades
To burst forth into flame again
Recollections of you have kept a spark
Burning in the deepest recesses of my heart
And away you went, again so soon
Just like the tides,
The pull of the moon.
