To be of the Earth is to know......
the restlessness of being a seed
the darkness of being planted
the struggle toward the light
the joy of bursting and bearing fruit
the love of being food for someone
the scattering of your seeds
the decay of the seasons
the mystery of death
and the miracle of birth
To be of the Water is to know ...
the humbling essence of spring
the fear of the unknown journey
the joy of sunbeam kisses radiating life
the pleasure of feeding her seeds
the love of merging with the clay along the shore
the mystery of growing roots
and the passion of the bloom.
-- me --
When Earth meets Water,
there is a natural devotion to one another .... an understanding of the gifts they provide and need to thrive.
there is a slow dance of deep knowing .... intricate steps stretching back beyond time into eternal harmony.
there is a union like no other .... infinite possibilities for growth and learning abound.
