All in Perspective

Earth
rolls through
the tidal pull
of the moon;
ocean rises to
and eases from the sway
of her lunar love.

The planet plows
into the mirror seasons
of its hemispheres
on a tipsy, spinning,
elliptical path.

We forever fall
as an autumn leaf
past the sun,
all of us
twirling and arcing
unawares,

or with equal truth
each holds a central point
hidden within, around which
the universe dances
at our whim.
