Umbilical Mother

Looking up
among her leaves
I lay quite still
the air I breathe
smells pure

I roll face down
claw the ground
send my umbilical
spiralling round
her earthen core

I breathe in grass
and shoot a blast
of pent up rage
down my umbilical mast
back deep in her pulsing well

She adds my rage
to the molten fire
co-creating earth
and my hearts desire
as one

This loving Earth
with great round girth
holds me, and tree
inter-planetary
and so much more

She lives, she breathes
my rage she sees
clawed to her crust
and sets me free, once more

I hope I didn’t burn the worms…
