    The animals knew that something was different
    And with one eye open and their ears to the air
    They listened
    To the tremulous breeze through the heat
    For the echoes and whispers
    Of this distant dissonance.

    Lying in the only greenery for miles
    On this ancient plain of
    one million wild thoughts
    this newborn form still crackling and raw
    a returned god in an old world
    curled tightly upon the dusty floor.

    A stammering heartbeat
    Her feet push her body from the ground
    Her eyes reach the sky and
    A joyous cry erupts
    As her sisters the winds gather closely
    And sing to celebrate her return.

    The ground cracks and aches
    And the animals stir in anticipation
    All eyes on her ascension to the horizon
    Chiuta.

    She gathers her children
    collected to her breast
    are each and every single breath
    from plants and trees the worlds breadth.

    Damp and excitable
    They entwine and climb to the skies roof
    Building a pale mountain
    That fades to a bruise
    As it grows and spreads and
    Begins to rumble the good news
    ‘We are the encroaching, life giving,
    thunderous deluge.’

    In the center of her family,
    Calm blue eyed and jubilant,
    Chiuta moves and sways and spins
    Weaving electric tension with her fingers,
    She holds the moment for so long
    That every living creature below
    Calls out with the same song

    Chiuta
