Rend the earth again.
Tear, rip through miles of rock and soil
Till the swollen, rounded, glowing core
Of bubbling liquid lies exposed.
Note the flow,
Time the pulses of heat,
Beating with undulating life seen and unseen.
Then watch the viscous liquid cool,
Solidifying against the pain
Of each cold breath you expel,
Stilling the beat of life
The transformation to cold, hard stone,
The breaking of her spirit,
She weeps stone tears
Her mother’s heart is torn open.
