Janine Himler: ‘The Earth’

The earth was slowly slipping
through my fingers
like the golden sand
fade into such an awful land
waning with every heart beat
down to the ground
forming new art
I dance in time with the breeze
I surrender myself to the seas
Far from betrayal –
Their traces worn away
oh sand, bring back the golden land
I give you for this
my whole hand.
