And Kiss the Earth

far to the east she rises
morning begins to burn
the hottest fire in the sky
sending great tendrils
of plasma
to lick the clouds
hot breath
blows on my face
and I absorb the energy
I will arise
to find all the moments
that await
and I will ponder all the things
I might create
the day is an embarkation
a raft to a future place
where I will pull my raft ashore
and she has traveled with me
an imperishable guide
steadily soaring above
even when I do not see
but the hours pass
and she has found a hiding place
still I know I will soon dream
and she will rise
and kiss the earth
and cover me with
that hottest energy
so hot that I can travel another day
to another place,
our souls are intertwined and I would never change it.
