I am

I am

a particular manifestation of the earth's contemplation of itself.

I came to be from dust,

and to dust shall I return.

I sculpt time and space awhile,

leave my mark

and my seed

and then am gone

in the blink of an eye.

I am a recycling machine,

a borrower of elements

that pass through me,

constantly becoming,

always flowing.

I am the river that flows through me

and through time.

I am my ancestors incarnate.

I am a tube within a tube,

swimming through time,

always becoming

who I am.

I am constantly struck by my excellent fortune of having you in my life as my partner. Thank you for illustrating this complex, artistic description of yourself, my love. You truly are a work of art.
