The Earth Turned To Bring Us Closer

From my best friend – For my best friend…

The earth turned to bring us closer,

it spun on itself and within us,

and finally joined us together in this dream

as written in the Symposium.

Nights passed by, snowfalls and solstices;

time passed in minutes and millennia.

An ox cart that was on its way to Nineveh

arrived in Nebraska.

A rooster was singing some distance from the world,

in one of the thousand pre-lives of our fathers.

The earth was spinning with its music

carrying us on board;

it didn’t stop turning a single moment

as if so much love, so much that’s miraculous

was only an adagio written long ago

in the Symposium’s score.
