earth day

Mother Earth,

I give thanks today for
your beauty and bounty.
I give thanks for the nurturing
and the life you have given me.

I ask your forgiveness
for my carelessness
and the disrespect I have sometimes
shown you.

I pray I do better.
I pray I pay more attention.
I pray I always see the magic
you hold and the glory
of all your creations.

I walk barefoot upon you,
I stand in your cold rivers,
I plunge my hands into your soil,
I feel your warmth on my skin,
I feel your rain and wind
upon my face.

I bow in gratitude today for
your wisdom and strength.
Teach me your ways.
Teach me to be wild and wise.

Thank you for the peace
you bring to my soul.
Thank you for the rest you
give my heart.

Aho, and so it is.
