He Lived in Her

He lived in her
like the wind
inhabits the land,
knowing each rock and cliff,
each flower and tree,
her heights, her depths,
and everything in between,
shaking her with a tempestuous force
to toughen up her branches and wings,
caressing her with unbearable softness
to awaken all the flowers
dormant in her skin,
to allow her to flow like liquid light
and fill the sky and sea.
