As bacteria that once gave life to a lonesome rock in this indifferent universe,
Our symbiosis gave birth to Earth.
Our every breath,
our every heartbeat
worship our dear Mother Nature,
as Nature worships us
with her gentle breezes,
her quiet rustling,
her soft grounds full of more life,
her tranquil waves
that ebbs and flows
as does Love.
When the sun rises
it’s Nature resurrecting to bask in our rejoicing.
When the sun sets
it’s Nature giving us peace that Death can be beautiful and full of companionship
with its withering light at the horizon’s end.
We are Nature
as Nature is us,
rejoice with the falling leaves
and the blooming flowers.
Rejoice this Earth Day
as magic springs not from fantasy
but from the roots beneath our feet.
