Layers of Life;

Layers of life fold like an onion.

A worker can stop and pick from a field.

Layers of life

Cause joy and confusion.

Lay awake,

and count the stars in profusion.

Orion a star

A hunter, a fighter.

Gatherer of glee.

A summon.

An answer.

A Jubilee.

The strong thrust of reason.

The small pull of faith.

You’re alone with the world.

A star that will not shake.
