My toes reach down
through the rich earth
to the bones of my ancestors
run through the marrow of their lives
soak up the fertilized sediment of their story

My thighs
cradle the generations
that will build on my bones

My heart
beats with the steady drum of those
who dance over the horizon ahead of me

My blood sings
with the high sweet voices
of those who follow us

My eyes see the future

My hands
reach for stars
