ink the earth

Processed with VSCO with c9 preset

i ink the earth with my blood
and let the rain wash the dirt from my body
my breath flows from the wind
my heart beats from the flutter of a birds wings
open up my chest and you'll see a sunflower field
look into my eyes and find a vast rainforest
examine the wrinkles in my hands and 
recognize the tops of sand dunes in a desert
gaze at my feet and witness the toes that have 
taken root in every type of soil
i've earned all of these inner spirits
and all i owe is my dust
