Poem -

KNOW...

KNOW...

Know
That I worship you
Still
Touch my lips to dewy leaves
Gorge myself on rolling hills
Am dazzled by your power
In the still dusk
And the dawning hour

Know 
That I am bewitched
Forever
By my footprint in your damp soil
The reflections in your lakes
The glory of the snowflakes
When you rouse yourself
And shake

Know
That I am awestruck
Always
By the electric charge of thunder
The wind that blows the land
The fierce bolts of lightning
That
Your potent force commands

Know
That I am grateful
Eternally
For the myriad colours
Conjured like magic
Ripe fruit on the trees
The force of rushing rivers
For love for hopes for dreams

Know
That I adore you
Passionately
​​​​​​For the nurturing we found
​​And as your children of all species
It is to your breast
We are bound

Know
That I love you
Mother
That when it is all gone
When you sigh your last breath
On the last morn
Know
That I'm sorry.
Marion Price(2019)

Hi Marion...I love and respect Mother Earth too for all she offers us to survive.  She shares all her beauty, despite our mistakes and abuse that we cause her.... so sad.  I am really disheartened by the wildfires in the Amazon right now and the progression of destruction to our world.  Great awareness write. xo ;)

Ha...we are truly doomed now I think, when you add all the small effects throughout the globe, the bigger picture is very alarming. We are arrogant in the assumption we can control everything Cherie and that will be our downfall. We cannot be shocked by the collapse of a bank if we have stolen all its assets...but man is very inventive, I'm sure they will find another world for us if we don't pollute the cosmos in the process! Thankyou 💕
