TITLE: The Wobble

The Earth spins
and wobbles
and we see stars changing
and moving across the sky
and we have seasons
and changes in the Earth
and then it rests.

Not all at once,
but in halves
as it must
due
to the wobble.

North half
summer fall winter spring
South half
winter spring summer fall
and the true
rest for the
Earth
spiritual and physical
is
Winter.

Winter to the Earth
is half-sleep
as it dreams-
dreams
of the other half.

Half asleep
and filled with dreams
spirit beings in the
heavens tend to it
rejuvenating, strengthing,
loving
and preparing it
for the wobble of
rebirth.

Winter and the planet
the body rests
nourished by the sky
and the Sun
above

Tended with love
as the spirit
in sleep
floats in its dreams
yet reaches out
to the stars above
and wonders
at its creation
its soul
its timeline
and
its death.

As
its child above,
the Moon,
half always in cold winter,
half in desert heat
longs for its motherís
wobble.

I like the creativity with which you approached this topic, and your apt descriptions of the "wobble."
