Eager to consumer
the vastness of our empire
ready to create another day of light.
But we will not be nourished
by this false heat
Instead we will sprout downward
returning to the earth once again
and we will become dirtied
rich and new.

We touch, we grasp
we grace another day with our love
one more day of warmth
to feed us in the winter months
the time of closed lips and minds.

Yes, let us embrace
for tomorrow our arms will be found wanting
but the memory of this day
will become something to hold onto.
