When we raised our heads

the sky broke through

and we saw God.

We stood on stilts

and remembered our names.

But then we saw gashes

in the garden below

and heel marks

from heavy boots.

We saw wolves and coyote

pacing around us,

watching our eyes.

And we threw off our stilts

and danced around fire

till Gaia was smooth and warm –

and in the circle of creatures

we remembered their names.
