Mandalas V

let the man carry the moon
for a season or two
not that the sun
doesn't shine so bright
in the broad blue sky
but let him feel
the ineffable deep
that comes
with carrying the moon

let the woman lift the sun
for a season or two
not that the moon
doesn't wax and wane
in delicious mystery
but let her feel
the boundless compass
that comes
with lifting the sun

let them bring
the silver of the moon
the gold of the sun
and circle each other
until a sudden reversal
brings them together
to touch
at the very center
