The Great Wheel

All of everything
is a great wheel
turning, vast, of all galaxies,
every universe, of which
ours is most certainly small.
Human time is the
flick of a finch feather and
our inhabitance will keep
as long as we care for it,
no longer. All the law
and all the prophets
can be summed up as this:
to roll inside the great wheel,
to turn with it,
not against it.
