casting down
on my skin, a silver moon
how can needs be fulfilled
when what is wanted
is not needed

waves rolling
across the sand
this is just a dream
tender and soft
I still believe in miracles

an ocean
shimmering with anima
pulls back and forth
back and forth…
make your footprints now

no matter
when or where
the tides, my blood
always feel
your lunar pull

darkness, lightness
yin yang, yang yin
all sentient beings
have many lives
