terra and firmament

inseparable from mind

reciprocal through the wire


trading life for truth

to smooth the cracks

born of a blind desire


seven billion strong

climb root to limb

the draw to transpire


declining the lead

from a vigilant stance

she will never tire


panoramic view

within her heart

that she helped to sire


she knows your faults are hers

when she carries them on

to the raging pyre


each moment, the first

fanning flames of love

within the apex of the fire
