It was told to me

the salt of the earth will protect me,

forming within

and without

an impenetrable boundary.

I asked, “Which salts are strongest?”

The earth said to me,

“Salt of your tears,

of your sweat,

the salts of the oceans that churn within you

imprinted with the crystalline structure

of your magic,

your purpose,

and energy.

When we mingle salts,

mine with yours,

yours with mine,

 we are one.

This is the greatest protection of all.”
