Centring the corkscrew sun
A globe revolving
Marking the seasons
As positions in Earth’s orbit
In a European sense
(Less understanding of .au
In a layered periodic change)
Perspectives in orange
Remembering twilight hues
The same day
               manifesting equality
Beings held to account
But in reality
               marginalia in the Milky Way
Some backwater
Hidden away from a supreme being
We amongst the heavens
Creation through evolution
And reverence given to life
Stressing importance
As nature is significant
On this watery rock
Fourth planet from Sol
Congruence celebrated
In half darkness
                half light
