We circle each other,
sun and moon, feel
the pull and push
of our magnetic fields.
At different times of day,
one of us yields or breaks away,
planets or stars in our own right,
creating our own light,
halos of independence,
before we collide,
take up the dance
we circle each other.

Peter is back with another ‘Meet the Bar craft-tuning exercise’, and we’re talking circles. He says that he’s thinking about circles because the east coast of Australia is being flooded. I’ve seen footage on the news and it looks apocalyptic! He explains that ‘factors like warm sea temperatures, on-shore flows and deepening troughs combine to create this great wet circle driving water into air, having it cascade onto the sodden earth and rushing to the oceans again.’
