imbolc

there is a stone circle
inside each of us

it measures
the balance between
darkness and light
in this field of battle
that stretches the whole horizon

there is a stone circle
inside each of us

it is a map
of pathways
connecting our breath
to our heart
sanguine arteries
pulsating in waves

there is a stone circle
inside each of us

it is a voice
that whispers
when it was that we were born
from this piece of earth with mere
flesh and bone and fire-sparked minds
much later on
it will also answer
why

there is a stone circle
inside each of us

it is a witness
a silent mouth to every connecting moment
that we call
our life
a great theatre of triumph
and failure

there is a stone circle
inside each of us

it is a gateway
to the starry beyond
when we are finally released
rejoining the infinite

there is a stone circle
inside each of us

it is a monument
of what will remain here
long after our days are gone

there is a stone circle
inside all of us

it is a calendar
that urges us to plant seeds
to begin this cycle again
and again
and again
