  we enter the circle after dark
  and are consumed by fire

• Life- imitates nature, always moving, traveling
  continuously. Falling leaves placed delicately;
  foliage touching the echoing waters, clarity
  removed - Reflections distorted through waves
  rippling; gracefully dancing mirrored images -
  reflect - images mirrored. Dancing gracefully,
  rippling waves through distorted reflections -
  removed clarity. Waters echoing the touching
  foliage; delicately placed leaves falling -
  continuously traveling, moving always, nature
  imitates life.
