of earth and sky

my spirit lives in a house made of earth and sky

there are butterflies in my eyelashes

stars in my eyes

rose petals line my lips

I dress my body with moonlight

my spine is stacked with the bones of my ancestors

a warm breeze carries prayers from my mouth to the divine

a thousand petaled lotus blooms eternally in my chest

my tears are a soft summer rain

when I speak, honey drips from my tongue and my voice sounds like thunder

there is fire in my belly

my hips and breasts hold the peaks of ancient mountains

the ocean ebbs and flows in my veins

my feet are roots that dig deep into fertile ground

I hold the universe in my womb

a volcano sits between my legs that erupts with milk, and nectar, and blood, and fire

I give birth to myself,

again and again,

until one day

I am swallowed

by the earthly body

that I came from
