That Which Lies Inside

There are seasons inside us
Whole continents, deep seas
Sun soaked stone, damp undergrowth
Vast stretches of undiscovered rainforest
There is a Himalayan mountain range
inside you, an unconquered Everest
There are five oceans inside me
Yet I am bound to the mouth of one stream
There are two poles at the center of my heart
There are places within me perpetually frozen
Where winter waits most of the year
before releasing Persephone
There is a Sun in the nucleus of your heart
Between its beats, there are days and nights
There are seas, valleys and lakes in your eyes
There are forests in your interiors blanketed by moonlight
Beneath the sea level of the surface of your gaze
There are worlds deep within us
unfamiliar with the stars
And strangers to the dawn though we may be
We have not forgotten the language of light
For within the perpetual darkness of the deep sea
It is in bioluminescence that we speak
