God Footing

God Footing

Dancing feet

write with bones

each pound

in the ground

is a letter of intent.

The jump

pumps the heart


the earth’s ear

to attention.

Wings sing

above arms in flight

the spread of influence

flexes muscled


Pray the unsilent

Witness speaks

to your hands

as fists unfold

to grasp this.
