Remember to gaze upon her,
lovingly close up or respectfully afar,
in all her splendid beauty and majesty.
Yet not allow ourselves to
be absorbed with our busyness,
that our being is lost.
Mother Earth is our goddess-guide,
and the heavens along with her.
Sing glorious songs to them all –
golden sun, silver moon and diamond stars.
If we stop and listen,
in the midst of our hectic days,
we can hear her whispers
on the gentle breeze,
or her roar in howling winds.
Quiet soft rain or sweet bird song,
becomes the mind-sounds
of our soul journeys home.
