I am your forest.

The sound of your ax

Silences my voice.

I am your…

I am…




I am Salmon.

I am Black Rhino.

I am Honey Bee.

Into your earth. Unless


You learn to hear

The Sea Meeting Pele

Laps into

His undulating loins,

sweat beads down my forehead,

pass my brow, stinging

my eyes in salt baths.

Darken our world… Nature reminds us

She is still here.
