Terrane

Megan M. Garr

And there 
at the upturn earth                            we kneel 
                                                       to speak
Color as much as
anywhere                                          dear island
It is a god’s frenzy
that heaves holy water                        into the willing air
And it is there
silica there
obsidian there
enough to believe in heaven
                                                        But is that fear that tremor
or is it fingers
tilling this earth to land upon
