A Poem of Thanks and Promise
I am thankful for mother nature
Her rhythms and gift, the continuous
healing she provides to our home here on earth
and all of us on it.
I'm thankful for her unconditional love,
her unwavering patience and
I promise to lace each breath with intent.
I promise to give back what I receive
and with each healing breath she gives me,
I will breathe life back into this world.
I promise to stay open to the simple ways
in which we can learn from her
and I promise to mirror her forgiveness
with myself and others when we fail to follow her guidance.
I promise to sit with her,
feel her/ see her/ smell her/ taste her
and listen when she whispers in my ear
the secrets of where we came from.
I promise to spread her unconditional
love through my being here.
