Emerging – If Earth’s Our Womb…

Margaret Mair:

April 22nd is a day set aside for us to remember our Earth and all she has given us. But we depend on her, on her life-giving water and fertile land, her air and clouds and sun and protective atmosphere, to sustain us every single day. Every day that we open our eyes to the rising sun is Earth Day. May we always remember to respect and care for her.

If earth’s our womb
We must be born
Of fire
And molten rock
And steam
And push our way
Out through
The tops of mountains
With lungs that yearn
To breathe sweet air,
Eyes that dream
Of soft sunlight,
Of sparkling springs,
Blue sky and
Plants growing green,
And feet that long
To walk on
Quiet ground.
