Spirit of Earth
I imagine you in all things;
alive in the sparkle of oceans, lakes and streams.
In misty veils that hang on dawn, like lavender dreams.
Spirit of Earth I’ve seen your breath arise,
in secret places where clouds are formed.
I’ve heard your silver laughter, as another stream is born.
In forests that call forth flowers and leaves.
In opal skies that cycle clouds, to rebirth every Spring.
Sweet Spirit of Earth lying in banks of blue flowers
Wonder, dream, and delight –these are your words.
Words that bid new mountains rise, convoluting
deep confessions like spells in violet eyes.
In dark realms is your Spirit waiting to arise.
Like a collage of beauty - Spirit of Earth
Your wisdom of renewal flows through all things.
Death is your slumber of symphonies, unsung.
