Earth Woman

Earth woman
no illusions this time

your body does not grow old,
holds back time.
a fire inside keeps
your skin alive and your eyes


pierce and capture

clinging to shadows
bathed in the moonlight

there can not be

and now we face things as one body
my hands on your stomach
and our eyes looking ahead

Earth woman
who leaps
and holds on to the dance
it is impossible to bury you

from your mouth comes air
and your fingers give light
