Heart of Fire
On my belly I dance you,
My mud-covered breasts are
sliding across your infinity
My womb is opening to you,
Darkness, and from the cradle of my hips
Crow flies, carrying your
sacred seed up to the skies
On my two feet and legs I dance
you, night-feathered Messenger between the Worlds
My arms are slicing through
thin air, homage to you, wise elder sister, and
my flesh and bones and soul are
shaking, receiving endless bounty from your overflowing beak.
On my knees I dance my prayers,
O Heart of Fire rising in the East.
Four times I bow, while tender
rays are making love to West and North and South.
Lo, Earth is born in glorious
Reflected by a morning sky so
drenched in light my blazing heart just bursts and lays the ashes down
