I raise a flower for you
Why have you forsaken me
I rise a river to you
How could you have forgotten me
I grow a tree from a seed
To provide all that you might need
Breathe and eat of my breast
Yet you have forgotten all the rest
Birds your brothers
Even snake and bear
All of creation
Gifted with life
But not one hurts me
As you do
Hope for you
That you will grow up
As the tree
Yet without me
Your paths grow fewer
So I ask this day
That you may recall
Smile and flow
Be at home

World Environment Day is 5 June…Imagining what Mother Earth might say to us…I tell her thank you, every day of my life, for making our lives possible.
💙🌎 Beautiful insight beautiful Mother Earth 🌎💙
I am truly crying today, as I am forced to watch, listen, accept the murder of a 100 year old pine tree that’s been living across the dirt road from me. May I find the strength to open, change…hearts and minds

Mother earth gives us all, from air and clouds above it, from plants and veggies above or below the surface and gold and coal from its womb, but what we human do, load it more and more.
You have real nice words for mother earth, let us respect it.
Thank you for your love and appreciation for Mother Earth!
