Until the Next Flower – By ElizaBeth Coira

Hope you all had a wonderful Earth Day weekend! And thank goodness everyday is Earth Day! Afterall, Earth happens to be the Great Common Ground we’re all living on, here in the now and present. Please enjoy “Until the Next Flower.” I was honored to share it this weekend at the Earth Day Celebration & Community Festival in Spokane, WA 🙂

There is no light
That summer brings
Than the One

The Light of Love
Illuminates us
Equal, shimmering
In the sun

Do you remember
All you people
The promise
We once held

Far too many
Have forgotten
Turned from paradise
To hell

But paradise
Still exists
Open up
Your lives

Turn off the clutter
Hate-filled noise
Tune in to Nature’s
Simple joy

Her paths will open
Up your wonder
Fields and forests

Smile and flow
Like rivers roll
And Love will bloom

In you

NEW YEAR – By ElizaBeth Coira


ElizaBeth Coira - The Home Grown Sojourner

New Year_ElizaBeth Coira_HomeGrownSojourner

Can we Love
Without the weight
Of worry
and fury

Can we soar
Without the cage
Of hate
and fear
Please tell me

What is it
We’ve been doing
Playing at
Through the years

Though it’s been done
By so many
For so long
As we awake

New choices
Await us

They are
For picking

I think I’ll walk
A while
Roll around
In the glow

Of All
New day
New year

Let’s wait
No more
To embrace

We are beacons of Love.

Love is our best defense
Against all that is not in the world
Both the seen and unseen
Known and unknown

Love is our best offense
Against those forces that try to force Us
To not be our beautiful
Amazing selves

Our best selves
Our free selves
Our soaring selves

Yet, with Love there is no need
For defense or offense

FINGERPRINTS – By ElizaBeth Coira

could god be what we do to each other?

ElizaBeth Coira - The Home Grown Sojourner

Fingerprints_ElizaBeth Coira_HomeGrownSojourner

An embryo
I yawn
Stretch open
To make my mark

Both what I’m given
And what I create
What I brush up against
What I embrace

This is the making
Of human
Though as I stare
At a tree

I notice the rings
Like my index fingers

We too
Are family

What we do
To each other

All days of my life I grow so tired
Of the assaults, insults, mistakes
Injuries, injustices, hatred, fear
Flung at me simply for being female
We must stand up
#DayoftheGirl 2016

Stand Up Strong Girl_ElizaBeth Coira_HomeGrownSojourner

I don’t need
Stilts or stilettos
To teeter totter
My way through life

I don’t need
A pale withered frame
To drag me down
As I wander around

I don’t need
Dainty day clothes
I’m not here
To play your game

I don’t agree
To run your race
Houses and TV’s
Mean little to me

What do I need
A strong heart
Strong base
Strong head
Strong legs
To get me where I’m going

What do I need
Fresh air
Wide open space
To be as I please

What will it take
To love myself
Stand up
Strong girl
To sad society
