Birth

Fire pushes water and earth down the red tunnel of blood and bone into its new home and the child enters air.

She will go far though never again as far as this until she receives and gives a different child into the world. Before that she barely glimpses the mysteries.

Sister, brother, the new child comes to each of us, the wild twin that will teach us what it sees in our blood, our river of fire we ride through air.
