When I gazed upon the earth, I became her mirror. She and I were one of majesty. Man carved across her flesh like a lover with violence and greed. His desire for land was cruel, a territorial possessiveness an experience Earth and I shared.
I looked at her veins exposed and naked, I recalled the whispers against my scars and browned skin. The earth and I shared this experience.
We were beautiful with every crevice and fold, a landscape of stories to behold. The majesty of a weathered skin, a lifetime to experience every sin. This we shared, from every vein and scar across our flesh.
The earth and I became each others mirror.
