Words that heal…

Words do heal!

This was a poem I read first thing today, from a small book I have on my night stand. “Earth Prayers From Around the World- 365 Prayers, Poems, and Invocations for Honoring the Earth”

“The small plot of ground
on which you were born
cannot be expected
to stay forever
the same.

Earth changes,
and home becomes different
places.

To feel alive,
important, and safe,
know your own waters
and hills, but know
more.

You have stars in your bones
and oceans
in blood.

You have opposing
terrain in each eye.
You belong to the land
and sky of your first cry,
you belong to infinity.”
