MY MOTHER, MY EARTH – By ElizaBeth Coira

My Mother My Earth_ElizaBeth Coira_HomeGrownSojourner

Mama why do you hurt
Mama why do you cry
Mama why do you tremble
Is it possible…have I finally sucked you dry

Mama why do you stare
With eyes blazing like the sun
Mama why do you care
Still for me, who’s nearly undone

All sense of your order
Delicate balance
Bountiful baskets
Of beautiful life

Your infinite wisdom
Love, patience, care
Disregarded too long
We must rise to the change

For worship of stories
–egos–men’s saviors
Has yielded too little

Why not let us burn
No, your cool rain still comes
Cleanses and nurtures
We are never alone

Or too far from your reach
Forgiveness and Love
All possible in
Your great blue embrace

So today I thank you — Mama
For all of my life
Without you I am nothing
But a forgotten dream

ElizaBeth Coira - The Home Grown Sojourner

Dear Human--Kind_ElizaBeth Coira_HomeGrownSojourner

Go to Nature
She is your home

Where you were born
To Be

Incubated by
Fresh air

You cut your teeth
On trees

Blue sky
Your blanket

Flowers, streams
–The best company

Soaring birds
Your song

Soft rabbits
Your pals

Good green earth
Your path

But where have you gone

Welcome To The Playground_ElizaBeth Coira_HomeGrownSojourner

Welcome to the playground
Let’s play a game or two
I will dance
May you sing
Let’s behold everything

The world so beautiful, bright
The paths so innumerable, right

So grab a partner
Find a friend
But should we not meet
before the end
I’ll see you after that

I am that
That I am
I’m in almost everything
But then again, so are you

Morning Transcendence_ElizaBeth Coira_HomeGrownSojourner

Good morning sunshine
At the dock’s end
Lakeside, Bird

A bright clear day
By the water Blue
Painting all
Within and Without

The loving colors
Of my real life
Mother Nature
Fills me full

As do wafts of
Water-kissed air
Gentle waves rock
And hold my soul

In this suspended
Ethereal existence
Like dreaming
Of All

This is the flow
The plane I have heard of
My prayers have been answered
May all dis-ease cease

DUTY – By ElizaBeth Coira

Duty_ElizaBeth Coira_HomeGrownSojourner

Is it my duty
To put on
A pretty face for you

Simply because I’m a woman

As though my life
Weren’t meant for more
Than the shadowy
Of others

As though my life
Weren’t my own
Beyond what a man
Would pay for

No my friends
That moment has passed
Of social sickness
Putrid illness

At least in my mind
But what’s true for you
Do you buy and consume
The old bloody ruse
