my feet hear the ground growing

   toe tentacles extend through strata

      sensing when the earth will cough

    aftershocks sputter

  my octopus arms encircle the world

envelop latitudes and longitudes

   hands smell the weather change

     reach for the rusty rain about to fall

   eyes graze the popcorn sky

brush against soft grey-bottomed clouds       

  my heart knows the moment

    night turns into day
