for she graciously shares with us her bounty.
She portrays the breadth of her love in the myriad shapes and colors
of the sky, the clouds, the rainbows.
She shows us, through her storms that there is a time to let go
of pregnant, built up energy…
And through her rain..that tears must come forth to release the energy
and, thus, offer cleansing and nourishment to the soul within.
Earth enfolds us in the fragrance of her myriad trees, plants and flowers…To remind us of the variety of ways that sweetness can come to us.
And that the sweetness is always there for us to experience
Or pass by if we so choose.
How glorious is her sun! Though sometimes unseen above the clouds,
Our Mother Earth keeps watch over us at night
For her moon offers a soft glow, quiet comfort while we sleep…
her stars twinkle at us as we close our eyes to rest,
a reminder to us that we, too, can keep a twinkle in our own eyes.
Mother Earth uses her wind to sweep over and around us,often with a gentle flow yet sometimes a powerful, energizing embrace…
perhaps a nudge for us to go with the flow of our own lives and natures.
How precious you are, Mother Earth!
How grateful I am to experience and partake of all that you offer.
How precious you are to me, dear Mother!
You provide me with the warmth of your love, the vitality of your spirit,
the sweet kindness in your heart and a twinkle ever present in your eyes.
There is so often a smile on your faceOffering a wordless greeting of joy to all you meet.
The quiet faith in your soul shows me that no matter what is happening,
the God of one’s understanding is always present to enfold us
gently in loving arms.
How precious you are, dear Mother,
For in my experiencing of our Mother Earth,
I am ever reminded of how blessed I feel to have you as my mother.
In loving memory of my mom, Eva Cox.
