When It Turns

When It Turns

When It Turns
Dedicated to .:R.E.A.S.O.N.
We can understand everything
In the way that the seasons change
by standing at every seam in the cycle
holding astonishment
like prayer beads
sliding between our fingers
a mediation on a cause of action
what turns the mechanism
of life
so gently that we can only see them
mirrored in birthdays
and graduations
and arriving and passing
this is the sum of life
seams in the cycle
arranged for our astonishment
slipping the big questions
and the small answers
between our fingers
a chance to know
the universe is happy we were born
feeling it profundly
from each seam in the cycle
when it turns
