Earth Spirit, mother to us all!

To celebrate Mother’s Day this Sunday in the UK (11th March), here is my poem about the ultimate icon of motherhood.  You may call her Divine Mother, Goddess energy, Mother Mary, Earth Spirit and so on.  To all the mothers out there (fur kids are included!), let’s celebrate the wonderful job we do in caring for our children; to all the children out there, do not forget to be thankful and spare a thought for those children in the world who are enduring terrible circumstances at the moment (bombings in Syria, terrorist atrocities all over the world, hunger, abuse of any kind).  Be grateful for each and every blessing we have in our lives and be kind to each other.  Amen.  With much love, Anita.❤ 🙏

Earth Spirit

She moves in tune
With the wind
Unseen by human eyes.
Her delicate veil
An endless trail
Of fairy-soft steps
Encircling the Earth.
Her breath is an Angel’s kiss
Light as the morning mist
Caressing the skyline.
Her dance a melodic harmony
Of light and form.
Earth Spirit rejoices
In this glorious morn.
She is maiden and mother
Sister and friend
Belonging to no-one and all.
Taste her in the air
After rainfall.
See her in the forest
Flitting to and fro.
Hear her song
In the waterfall at dusk
When creatures
Large and small
Congress to heed her call.
Earth Spirit breathes calm
Over all.
Earth Spirit breathes calm
On us all.
She breathes for us all.
