You Are The Earth

The sun sets in your left eye

And rises in your right.

Salmon swim through your bloodstream.

Birds fly across your heart.

Your body’s both

A star and a storm

Lightning flashing

From the thunderhead

Of your brain.

Grass grows all over your body.

The sky that begins

Inside your skeleton,

Doesn’t end with your skin,

But includes every living

Being you touch

With the leaves of your fingers

Or the paintbrush of your mind.

The tornados of your DNA

Spin through you,

Whirling with fresh, never-ending
