Balance

Centring the corkscrew sun

A globe revolving

Marking the seasons

As positions in Earth’s orbit

In a European sense

(Less understanding of .au

In a layered periodic change)

 

Harmony

Perspectives in orange

Remembering twilight hues

The same day

                manifesting equality

Beings held to account

But in reality

                marginalia in the Milky Way

Some backwater

Hidden away from a supreme being

We amongst the heavens

Creation through evolution

And reverence given to life

 

Stressing importance

As nature is significant

On this watery rock

Fourth planet from Sol

Congruence celebrated

In half darkness

                half light
