feet strike floor
boards rattling
the pounding of palms of feet,
stomping, reverberating
up my tree trunk legs
towards the sky
arms shoot out like branches from my sides and then
elbows bend
palms of hands open wide, wider
than before now, stretching
each finger tip, spirals out
waves of fierce, hot
i am
big, big, bigger
than before now, stretching
i am rooted down
deep, past the crumbling crust
through to where the water flows beneath
down to the fire again, burning
i am
magma, earth, root, core
