Lessons from my Mother

I walk within the arms of my Mother Earth

and listen to the lessons she whispers to me.

Within the rustling of the leaves on the trees

I hear a caution to be loving and caring to all I meet.

It’s a message that rises from the roots and travels

to the very tips of the leaves at the top of the tree,

such an important message to understand.

The birds living in their nests echo the sentiment

to be loving and caring and kindย to all who need.

Their chirp sings that we must take care of one another,

no harassing orย hating or hurting even if they are different.

I hear a message of healing in the water rushing through the creek.

A very important lesson from water as we let things flow naturally

and do not try to fight against the current.

Clear, clean and caring, water will purify the soul as it washes past.

I listen as Mother Nature whispers lessons of love into my soul.
