Energy stirring at the base of the spine
the hot embers of who I hoped to be
coiled serpent left sleeping
give me the tools to seduce it
and draw it out of stillness

Release vitality into my veins and
place my heart in the hearth of purpose
fluttering bird beneath my breast, take flight
turn me from torturous distraction
light me up with internal intention

Sizzling stimulation of skin and bone
the rising tide of the mighty sea inside
spilling over into external existence
self-sustained wheels of spinning fire
propel me forward with focus

Let me overcome the illusion
that my energy is limited
befriending the deep source
settled beneath the murky water
of this mysterious earthly form
