Birth

i am in the earth
  where we were born
    lying in the sacred hand
cupped by beauty 
  gentleness made by
    years of wearing
from the birth waters
  of earths running connectedness
    to water and life flowing 
born in wonder and awe
  from hidden depths
    til it surfaces
and all are touched
  from the baptism
    of having entered the gentle 
welcoming hands of Mother
  once again awakening
    the memory of our origin
