Slash the circle to the midpoint.
Illuminate the spiral.  Reveal the design.
Shine through the roof box
angled to the passage.
Strike the rock pillar.

The sun runs from the celestial equator.
The sun stands still.  Stop the ecliptic.
The line of declination points to the galaxy core.
The rays illustrate the southern axis
angling towards galaxy central.
The plane of our solar system flies—
not by chance—
to the region surrounding the galaxy core.
The Ancients knew.
For three days the rays track the triple spiral
but strike the stone basin,
sending the ancestor spirits back on the sunbeam
to the centre of our galaxy.
A soul track which cuts through time.
