One with the Earth

By Blair Haft, age 12, Florida


I will walk with my feet bare
Over hot, burning embers
Letting the rusty nails dig into my heels
While I mold the sand into the arch of my foot
I can seep into the squishy mud
And notice every grain of rock
As the blades of grass lick my ankles
The rhythmic beat of the earth
Will travel through my core
