Wind of seeds

A seed wind blew out of the north
Seeds stuck into my skin
They pushed me down to the earth
And sprouted roots in my veins
Each soft, supple root encircled my heart
Cornlike auburn  plants pushed up from my flesh
On the underside of their leaves tiny white hairs rose and fell with my pulse
I never felt more wanted
I never slept so well
