Mayflies only see one sunrise,
algae dies before the oak.
A wave created, hits the shore
and dissipates at that first stroke.
Oh beats so fast the hummingbird heart
In constant wheel we wax and wane.
The countdown quickens for when so small,
we live, we die, begin again
As rainbows slowly fade away,
from birth to death the yang and ying
of numbered heartbeats counting down,
but love.. what of this longed for thing?
If love were Turritopsis Duhrnii
t’would surely last eternally?
Immortal jellyfish so sage
please pass your secrets onto me….
