Child Of the Earth
In the still of the night I go walking,
Moon shadows tenuously follow me,
Sinuously snake across the dusty ground,
Leave crunch, breaking like bones beneath my feet,
'Though I step carefully.
The silent stars proudly display their beauty,
Against the black velvet night.
Orion is my guiding light.
A breeze softly stirs in the towering trees,
As they quietly whisper my name,
Telling my secrets to the infinite darkness.
The slow moving water calls seductively to me,
Let me caress you,
Cover you with my love.
Unpeeling my day skin I join her.
The cold shook of contact,
Awakens me momentarily from my trance,
Until she rocks me smoothly,
As l melt with her.
We move in a duet for one in fluid motion,
An unending symphony from a single refrain,
Flowing through my body,
Playing in my brain.
Regretfully I wrench myself from the safety of her womb,
Moonbeams dance across my rippled flesh,
I raise my hands to the heavens,
And celebrate my oneness with the earth.
