gnarled by history;
reaching here, then straining there
- perfect for hugging

Fallen Rising Glory

From frigid and dark heights -
Through vortices and gravities,
Life falls down.

From a flaming celestial torch -
Through frigid and dark heights,
Life falls down.

From warm and fertile earth -
Through rocks and old dry bones,
Life rises up.

From rivers dark and hidden -
Through warm and fertile earth,
Life rises up!
