A phantom seeps howls cracks
these limestone walls
til fragments tremble
and the old cistern bows, finally.

Born of dust and parched labor,
drought taunts edgy mouths
dancing chants nightly
and spirits awaken, finally.

A trickle of liquid
extends over lessons marked 
by seeds caressed in earth
and blossoms, finally.

Blessings charm bellies 
now growing in hasty renewal 
from shining streams splashing
and a phantom wanes, finally.

Until arriving restless moons once again
form nimble boughs grasping
towards the sacred wheel of life,
but they forgive the cycles, finally.
