Sacred Ground

tender foot upon the earth 2 © 2013 heather rhodes studio petronella all rights reserved lr fb page ©.jpg

Long skirts
Brushing along
The edges of the earth...
 

Tender-bottomed feet
Dressed in cracks and creases;
 

Claiming
The shifting terrain
As always home... 
 

Swaying hips
To and fro,
 

Eyes wide closed,
 

Listening to
Inner rhythms
In the outer world;
 

The beating of the firefly's wings
In the cocoon of the evening air...
 

The swish of the mare's tail
In the sunlit meadow...

 

The yearning of the leaves
To become more green...

 

The softening of my belly
As the sun kisses my skin...

 

The leaning of the tall grasses in the field
As they commune with the wind...

 

The twitching of the doe's ear
As she listens to my


Long skirts
Brushing along
The edges of the earth...
