Gleaming-Earth Red Reindeer Goddess
This Reindeer Goddess gleams with wonder
as she gazes out at her home planet.
Earth is The Great Mother of all that lives
in this delicate and temporary place in space.
Every day the Reindeer Goddess travels
a winding path across The Great Mother's
strong, stony, fertile and water-webbed back.
The Reindeer Goddess walks, and keeps walking,
because it is her deepest desire to know
all there is to know about the Earth:
it's magic, it's history, it's joys. And sorrows.
She does not want her walk, or the Earth,
to ever end in anything but the natural
passing of an ancient Spirit from one space
to the next. Where All Begins Again.
