Gods of the Earth

Gods of the Earth

We were hidden deep in the caves of the earth

 pushed to the surface by the cracks and shifts of the crust

 walked and gave the moon her name

fell in love with Venus and the stars

We have rested in the folds of the sky

traveled in swift canoes across the milky way

 lain still in the furthers corner of Orion

we must, to be born again

 to settle softly into a virgin forest

 to build our house of rock on a rise above the river

 where we will name ourselves gods of the earth

 where we will wait to be folded once again

into the cold blue creases of the sky
