We felt small

He interrupted us ,smiling,
In our endless dreams,
In the infinite space beyond
Where the eagles soared.
The earth came alive
Where his feet touched .
Thick conical leaves
Intertwined with his legs
To hide a splendid nakedness
From the sleeping world.

We felt small as if
We had to remain silent
While the earth came alive.
