From the soil

From the soil I learn the rhythm of wind and water
Soil from which woman climbs to feel her skin fully
Soil sings from every corner of her body
Trembles the fertility of soil straight through the soles of her feet
Soil is happy to feel woman treading
her spoor deeply
She presses her lips and chest firmly to the earth
Feel the vibration of mineral strength
She knows it is a myth that she was pulled from the rib of man
Her gut tells her that she was forged from the spine of earth
