Gifts of the Earth

June 17, 2022

Staying Alive –
first place of learning;
food and shelter
anchor
Eden’s
outcasts, shattered paradise –
Security and Well- Being
toiling, gardens for their own;
sparkling streams,
dense forests,
animals, and birds –
family, nature’s greatest gift.

Talking to myself but I never listen –
fossil fuels, water, wind, sunlight, forests,
valuable metals and even tides –
the air so vital for survival, of the living.

Talking to myself but I never listen –
air to breathe, nurturing rain, black soil, berries and honeybees, –
gifts of the earth we’ve neither earned nor paid for.

Beautiful vistas overlooking landscapes.

Leaves and flowers, fruits and seeds; Lakes and ponds, waterfalls and seas.

Colorful sunsets, rainbows, life and death, freedom, all principles belonging to nature and her cycles.

Gifts of nature
fresh flowing
sound and singing
diversity
nuts growing on trees –

the tree that became this page.
