How may I recreate
the earth?
Let me take,
no, receive
one breath, tasting
starlight in the
effortless ascent
from my belly
to the space above
my crown.
I remember now.
This is the stream
of innocence
that bathed us all
before we took our
first steps.
Ours was the courage
of unwavering gratitude,
redeeming the world
with wonder.
There now.
I have done it.
And the earth
is new.
