The poem I was reading:

Line:
As the moon revolves around the Earth
and as the Earth revolves around the Sun
I revolve around you
countless times and in countless ways -
up and down and in and out
north and south and east and west
straight and cross
over and under
and round and round ...
Dot:
Unless you are present
and unless you go around me
my existence does not count
Line:
Without you I am lost in myriad ways
with neither a start nor an end
and neither here nor there
Dot:
Dots are just dots
neatly arranged in rows after rows
like letters in the alphabet
You are the one
that makes words out of these letters -
Pretty patterns with beautiful words
Thoughtful motifs with meaningful words
Line:
You are constancy and I am motion
You are the heart and I am emotion
You are the beginning and I'm the end
With you I am one
without you I am none
The gentle breeze and the rustling leaves
The glowing sky and the rippled river
overhear the conversation and wondered
whether ardhanarISvara was speaking before them!
