Vortex of Elements – Author Sue Lobo

Vortex of Elements

Spinning through elements in the vortex of time,

Around the circle of this short life that I call mine,

Birthing, growing & ageing in the elements of life,

Dancing on the sharp edge of mortality´s knife.

From the earth of my birth & planned planted seed,

Through youth´s fired passion of the emotional bleed,

Arriving at shores ebbing waters, of tides tired breath,

To end of life´s circle & the finality of welcoming death.
