He discovered naked earth
as hands climbed atop pointed hills
and slid down flattened plains.

Then he journeyed south,
following the sound of waterfalls
to reach moistened canyon.

He navigated through my valley,
brought me to the peak
where I fell off the edge of ecstasy.

His ship steered into my channel
as I guided him to uncharted lands
to find buried treasures.

Deep within, I awaken
a dormant geyser as it erupts
and surges into narrow cavern.
