Earth Poems

Her Green Womb...

Inside Her green womb
Is where I lost myself
So I could find myself

Inside Her green womb
Is where I found Her love
Felt Her eternal embrace
Looked into Her beautiful face

Upon Her green womb
Is where I climbed
Over Her rocks
Thru Her cracks

Her cracks where fears lied
Hidden so deep inside
The cracks of my mind

So I climbed Her rocks to the top
Where I could breathe Her in
Breathe in Her calm winds
At Her top is where I sat
At the breast of Her beauty

Then down Her path I descended
Her path that I followed
Thru Her grove of green calm
That was filled with silence
Her trees hushed mysteries
Of their quietly changing colors
That changed me quietly within
The calm beauty of Her green womb

For Her green womb
Is where I found Her love
Felt Her eternal embrace
Looked into Her beautiful face

Inside Her green womb
Is where I lost myself
So I could find myself

In Her Soil... 

I had a dream last night
A dream that I was a newborn seed
    falling from Father Sky
Falling from Father Sky to impregnate Mother Gaia
    with new growth
 

Oh how I fell...
Fell deep into an open womb in Her earth
Deep into Her open womb as my hearth
Deep into Her where I would be rebirthed
 

As I fell deeper into Her
I became enfolded within Her layers of warm rich soil
Embraced by Her warm rich soil that implanted me deep
Implanted me deep into Her love
Her earthly embryonic love
 

Then the rain fell
...fell upon us - moist, warm, wet rain - fell upon us....
Rain that penetrated Her layers and germinated me
Together they spore me into a new individual
 

A new individual that would walk once again
Walk upon Her earth within the dreams of my life
A new individual with Her roots as my feet
Roots that would connect me once again to Her core
A new individual with Her branches as my hands
Branches that would touch upon the wisdom of Father Sky
A new individual with Her trunk as my belly
    My belly so round and full
    So round and full with Her breath
    Her breath that I would fully breathe

    in...out...in...out...in...out...
Until we are breathing together as one
Together as one being
Together in Her soil
 

In Her soil where all I see is...
    Her beauty above me
    Her beauty below me
    Her beauty in me
    Her beauty all around me 

In Her soil where all I see is...
Her beauty growing from fertile green earth
Up to Her endless cerulean sky
To inbetween where all Her beauty lies
 

In Her soil where all I see is...
    Her beauty that surrounds me
    Her beauty that abounds me
    Her beauty that is all around me
Her beauty that always astounds me
