When I met this Earth Punani
I knew I was invited inside
so I walked in slowly
gliding my hands along the way
feeling the content of my bones
more and more till I
reached the center
ready to sleep for days

Mother Water, My Belly

Mother Water
told me
I have a seed
inside my belly
a memory 
of times
when grandmother
could drink
from the pure river
so when i meet you
little stream
my mouth
begins to water
and i remember
that I am not a dreamer
but a knower
of times
and this gives me hope
for life to come
Mother Water
my cure
Mother Water
my belly
