Sacred flow

Please leave me alone

Life needs to happen

Without me

For an afternoon or two

While I sit here


Cradled by the roots

Of my favourite tree

My back supported

By its trunk

The moss

Providing a cushion

Caressing my naked skin

While my sacred blood

Flows freely

From my womb

Into the Earth.
