She is the moment when body
knits to body and the world flowers.
She enlivens everything: plants
in the meadow, the ocean's fish,
animals hidden in the forest,
birds tumbling on the wind.
She is our darling, who under
the wheeling stars makes all
things blossom and bear fruit.
At her approach storms clear,
dark clouds dissolve to blue,
sweet earth and all the oceans
smile, and her light dances brilliant
through the flourishing world.

This is my entry for the digital-whisper challenge #53 Life. It is also in celebration of Earth Day which is this Friday April 22nd. Hopefully we can all get outside and give thanks and spend some time in nature and perhaps plant something, pick up debris or tend to the earth in some way to help heal and nourish our only home.
