announcing. Liam’s. song.

Within the circle of our lives,
we dance the circles of the years,
the circles of the seasons
within the circles of the years,


the cycles of the moon
within the circles of the seasons,
the circles of our reasons
within the cycles of the moon.

Again, again, we come and go,
changed, changing.  Hands
join, unjoin in love and fear,
grief and joy.  The circles turn,
each giving unto each, into all.DSC_0460


Only music keeps us here,
each by all the others held.

In the hold of hands and eyes
we turn in pairs, that joining
joining each to all again.

And then we turn aside, alone,
out of the sunlight gone

into the darker circles of return.
