• Dividing Being

    Eternity is an ellipses on the page 
    beginnings and endings far from view 
    A ratio of youth to old age
    subtracted in days to accrue
    A moon circles the planet's orbit
    disappearing for half its route
    The pair to each other seldom forfeit
    as the line a circle includes
    Equal is the distance to travel
    each point on the curve a mirror
    Where certainties of existence unravel
    life's axis tilting familiar 

    Measuring far to near the ruler proves a riddle 
    intersecting meaning in a nexus of middles

    Dividing being--
