Understanding declares itself

A horn shatters the darkness

Silencing the creatures of the night

Everything pauses to listen and check itself

Is it safe?

Is it near?

Father time unfolds himself

As he awakens from the deep

Blowing the horn


His form blocking the stars

A giant

He stands sure of himself

Knowing his path

He announces the end and the beginning

The creatures take a seat

Readying themselves for the coming

The change is upon them

They know

Their pulses beat excitedly

As the new moon rises

Hairs bristle

The jumpers leap

and those that can dance do

The earth knows

Fulfilment is now.
