The Heart of the Earth

These trees

These reaching woods

With roots that slither and crawl and wrap themselves deep

.

These wise elders

With a pulse as loud as the waves

They whisper dreams

And beauty

And life

Down into the core of our earth

And grasp strong

.

With fingertips that reach to the heavens

To tickle the stars

.

The Heart of the Earth

Where all gets its life

.

I curl into your armpit

Lay quite with your breath

Feel safe behind the armor of your skin

.

Nothing can hurt me here
