i feel her support underfoot

always carrying me.

 

her surface is softening

and

i am waking.

 

each day she changes

and

each day she offers something new.

 

how is it that you do not see this, human?

 

without her there is no us.

 

as i wander the land

SHE wanders with me.

as i forage for berries

SHE forages with me.

 

SHE is always there.

under foot

and

all around.

 

as i wake from my slumber

my eyes are fed.

life is everywhere.

 

she sheltered me as i rested.

held my young with loving care.

step out, dear humans

with your skinned feet

and feel.

 

feel her support

feel her nurturing

feel her endless offerings

the Great Mother Earth.

 

with love, bear
