June 5th 2008:

There is vulnerability

In the bud, and

Small new leaves.

In all young,

Newborns sprouting

Into Life.

There is freshness in

Water- life-giving

Sparkling fluid;

Magical, flowing,

Crashing, spraying,


From the clouds;

From the mountains

Into the expansive sea.

There is infinite energy

Power, radiance, in

The Sun.

It can give warmth and comfort

Or scorch and destroy.

Blind with brilliance or

Dive from beautiful hues.

Great big old


I needn’t kneel to feel


Fresh with new life

And crisp air.

Life is a miracle.

This Earth is a miracle.

Earth is home.
