I said to the world one night

“World!

In this light

You look beautiful.

Get that moonlight out of your grass would you?

You are enigmatic

To a mortal like me”

World?

Crickets.

“I know you’re still there because you’re turning around,

don’t hide from me”

Chirping

“Come on,

I can’t predict our behavior any more

than your seasons changing”

Not a wink.  

“World!

We don’t understand our own strength,

you do”

Crickets again

“Okay. I’ll take that as a sign then.

My life is in your hairy hands

Do with me what you will

But know this beautiful,

Never stop the ebb and flow of your rotation,

It’s the one thing we wish

we could control”

Earthquake.
