Honoring Our Earth

There is no specific date to
remember our mother earth
we should honor her every day

Mother of all
Gaia, beautiful and endless roots
have doted on us for millenia

with leaves of grass and gigantic evergreens
rushing rivers, glossy great falls,
a canopy of cherry blossoms,
cheerful daisies galore delight

your majestic sights excite
and inspire to create
the greatest songs and poems
for your abundance is pure love
shown in masterpieces

your fields of dreams induced
by the sweet aroma of lavender
promote peace and harmony

Dessert flowers mesmerize the nomad
and even your mirages give hope to lost souls
Frosted mountains salute the sun

Mother Earth, Gaia,
Mahimata,
Madre Tierra,
Green Goddess,

There is no specific date to
remember or honor you.
