Zelda's Inferno exercise: spirals

Zelda's Inferno exercise: (from http://www.davidrm.com/thejournal/tjresources-exercises.php#poetry)

Write a poem about something that "spirals".

or

Write a poem using images of things that are connected, such as "paperclip(s)", or "trains".

or

Write a poem about a very small object.


qi --
that energy in martial arts and acupuncture and the like --
moves in spirals
or so I have been told
like water in the drain
or the stars of the galaxy slowly falling into the center
or the spiral dance

moving to the side
and also centerwards
the long way to the middle

they say that the sun formed from a spiral
hydrogen falling into the center until it caught nuclear fire
that's what moving in a spiral can do for you
