turning us round
lifting us up and dragging us down
spinning us high in the atmosphere
pushing us low and raising us clear.
And this circle that begins my name
is the sign of infinity, a zero, a mouth
A compass that points both north and south.
is a snake devouring its tail
a wheel of fortune,
a knotless cord that cannot be undone.
May this circle stand around your heart
To keep you safe
In the light and the dark.
