Her Magnetism

I lie facedown
Body of earth
underneath mine.
She fits my shape
holding me, faithful to me.
We mix our feelings
We’ve been together for years.
When I turn my body over
and press my face to the sky
she covers my backside entirely.
From the skin of earth
a music comes into me.
Purring tones of fire.
I feel Her breath
a muffled secret
between our bodies.
Is this Hers or mine?
It must be mutual,
this flood
of comfort.
