I am in the soil whereupon you stand

hear me in the rustling of the leaves

as you walk through the autumn woods

May the last monsoon remnants

caress us and cleanse us both.

Smell me then, my love

in every morsel

of breath you take

Let your soul




me with

your barefeet

One step at a

time so you feel me

awaken each fibre 

as I rise up from your soles

My essence spreading to your soul

Absorb me till we are both consumed

Till we fuse as one and go back to earth
