song for the earth

Happy Earth Day!

Rain 

it is you, my soil that I crave even here

around the bends 
of this faceted world where 
edges seem sharper than some I have known, 

I listen to rain seep through your furrows
my ears to your parched skin and my breathing with it in unison

I cannot, but love you for your breath was my beginnings
