Its an earth day,
birds have gone to ground,
and bare feet connect in a glow of blue,
feeding the mother as she feeds us too,
and dull the sky, clouds in dim hues of grey
contain the earthen play,
the resting of elements to honor one
in these cycles of expression.
Trees in delicate webs of energy
flow so tirelessly into ground
and join with others in vast arrays,
connections of life in symbiotic ways,
sharing and uplifting each moment of life,
beyond time, beyond sentience,
just being in nature’s perfection,
within their own divinity.
A day for patience, stability,
one where work lessens burdens
with one step at a time rewarding,
and practicality a path of best outcomes,
when earth grounds us,
keeps us connected to life’s flow,
and we evaluate in calm resolve,
the stoic nature we must aspire.
And as the clouds slowly part,
and vibrant sky imparts its will,
the sun warms minds and bodies
and as air becomes the focus,
birds suddenly appear,
and chatter builds in social grace,
realizations in wait, ensue,
thoughts of world and sharing find expression.
The Mother shows us the way,
each nuance of change a piece of a puzzle,
for us to learn and abide by,
as life in fluctuation mirrors our needs
to connect and share our energy
with all of life and earth,
and know we are an integral part,
a flow of an eternal truth.
