In Nature’s Tender Embrace

In Nature's Tender Embrace
In Nature’s Tender Embrace

The breath of earth,
is the rise and fall of days,
and within our sentient knowing,
we all live in a state of symbiosis,
one without the other cannot be,
as we live for and by one another,
the energy of life flowing freely
between us.

Seasons are but the moods of nature,
extremes in nurture that sustain us,
give variety and challenge
to life’s learning
and the whispers of the natural world
to enlighten us to grow,
all this we need to know,
to connect more profoundly to earth.

The elements guide us,
their powers within which we rely,
to yield our imbalances,
to cleanse and earth our confusion,
and create sense when delusions take hold,
and in the wind our dreams flow,
in the fire our desires tongue the present,
to keep us alive, yet grounded.

Connecting with earth
should be a daily practice,
the flow of us reliant upon this fostering,
as we travail earthly life, in the undulations
of emotions and circumstance,
that can so easily bring us to imbalance
and unhappiness,
all dependent upon the changes within.

Being aware of the earth and its guidance
is a gift of undeniable worth,
for we are of those elements too,
and our moods like the seasons
must navigate life and experience,
to learn and grow,
like any plant or organism,
all of the same stuff as we.

Earth is home, our brother and our mother,
and we suckle within its goodness,
thrive in balance and grow, as any life,
given all the nutrients in sustaining our being,
so it is imperative we listen
and let nature show us the way,
for the Mother knows our plight,
and the flow that should be our delight in living.
