Earthian Body

“The earth holds a vast wisdom and a capacity to heal. We are made from earth. This is my hope.” Susan Griffin

Gaia, from you I have risen live,
expressing Earth
in human shape.
Long years have I lifted in light
from your planet womb of dark.

In the middle of the wind,
have I lived a rich full life.
My bare feet on green grass
have anchored
the spinning out of days.

Gazing at the morning sun
has for decades cleared my vision.
With the waters of the world,
I have cleansed my Earthian body.
and quenched my thirsts.

Gaia, soon enough
into the waters of the world
I will flow like a tiny creek.
In the center of the wind,
I will waft in joy.

With sun as sister witness,
then I will conflagrate
in glorious transformation.
Gaia, I will lie back down,
to once again become you.
