we hear your sighs...
we feel your bones shift from bearing our weight
we see your rhythms change from our collective songs.
From your core we came,
through your oceans we live
to your soil we return.
It is once again Earth Day and as always a time to cherish our swirling home and vow to do better with her care. Not just this day but hopefully every day. There is so much to be said about our impact on the planet and I feel that good strides are being made; not only through education and awareness but through actual change and implementation of programs worldwide. We still have along way to go however. It is mind boggling how recuperative this planet is, and I would like to keep this Earth Day in a positive light; taking the lessons learned from nature at how it adapts, recovers and renews. Earth's own energy is at times very violent and destructive (not always our doing) and reminds us that we live in a delicate balance; not to take things for granted.
I hope everyone today has a chance to get "back to the garden" to connect, renew and plant the seeds for the future.
