I CALLED YOU MOTHER - to our mother earth
I CALLED YOU MOTHER (To our mother earth)
You are brief - today earth
don't contain me-
don't comprehend me
you still must learn to speak to me
by telling me how.
You are the one who
opens the seed - naked
and forced it to the song
you set on its centre
an exact address of man
or towering tree
and light 'the kingdom'.
Yet I called 'Mater'-
your immense face.
When the evenings bouncing on the ridge
and stretch limbs excess in every vital sign
I justified the sky
at the shade of a little knowledge.
I know it is unwise getting your sleep at my vigils-
And you are Gaia that is earth
clods of Intelligence Bread over the clay -
And there's nothing - Gea -
I can teach you-
The sky has no teachers under its arc
