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.

Passionately,
WIP
