Spread me open
like a map.


Trace my outlines,
lingering on
every curve,
each peak.


Sketch a path
south of the equator
through untouched territories.


Explore my mountains
and my valleys,
hear cascading waterfalls
as you move deeper.


Find your way into my oceans;
make your home there.


Plunge into my abyss
and unearth underwater volcanos
aching to erupt.
