Walk upon the Mother and feel her sorrow and anguish, her frustration and pain.
Her water polluted, this is her blood stream full of toxins we've casually/accidentally dropped.
Would we have been so careless with our own veins? Some of us surely would.
Her land abused and invaded, this is her skin, torn and bruised, poked and prodded.
Scattering her creatures, ourselves and locking us all in forced cages.
Her core exploding, transplanted parts scattered from one end of her body to the other.
This is her heart in the throws of attack.
Broken but so strong and loving none the less, she still nurtures and provides.
We trample upon her as if we own her and yet she is our keeper.
From her all things came and to her all things go.
Are we so careless with all we possess?
Throw away societies with a drive-through mentality.
This cannot go on if we wish to go on.
Happy Earth Day...

It is the simplest, most intricate events in this life that cultivate slowly to make the greatest things happen. These small weavings through time are a treasures we often overlook. Walk each moment in a way that leaves you whole and not wanting. Not always the way it goes but surely the way most rewarding, most memorable and most pleasing when hindsight sits at your feet, beckoning you to understand the lesson.
