And from the sky
The water spills
Reliever of a thirsty earth
The patter beat
A muffled thrill
It sounds like peace
Smells like rebirth

And one breath in
I’m filled inside
With the perfume of all that’s lived and died
An ancient memory reminds me I’m alive

I am the soil
With upturned hands
Receiver of this primal grace
On wafts of plenty
My chest expands
Newborn again with the smell of rain

And one breath in
Lungs ache for more
This heaven scent
This petrichor
My ancient bones knows that I’ve been here before

Of gods and stone
Of dreams and pain
And whispers from
An echoed age
This blood that courses
Through my veins
This verdant truth, eternal rain

Just one breath in
It makes me cry
The perfume of all that’s lived and died
An ancient memory that I am here, alive
