my soul sprouts feet

my soul sprouts feet
reaching thin roots
into the lush earth

my soul breaks
on smooth stones
like the sea

it rages
inside my ribs
like a cat in a cage

pours itself out
like honey
into your hand

lift it
to your lips
and pass it along

Though this wasn't meant to go with the picture, I could see your soul as water pouring out from your words. Now, I need to go find a towel:)
