The warmth
that concentrates at night
gives birth to the sun,

which keeps warm
the night's remains,

whose warmth
concentrates at night,
giving birth to the sun at dawn.

    This poem makes sense, the circular pattern of day and night,
    both holding the warmth for one another. A cyclical pattern.
