Hold strong unto this flower of life

A perfect sphere drawn from the sun

A slender watery arrow poised and pierced

the separation has begun


Two lungs halved

for every breath I dared to draw

four quarters

accounting every corner of my heart

for every sense that could embrace you

and the sixth that could intuit you


For all of you that emerged from the surface of infinity

and shared with us a glimpse of consciousness

and for you who decided to grab on

hold strong unto this flower of life.
