Creating poetry and flash fiction inspired by nature photography to cultivate a deeper connection with Mother Nature. What is she saying?
In the forest I see her face,
and her hushed voice calls out to me:
“Listen, for you are of this place.
You are a sibling to each tree.”
I take her hand by my spirit
and kiss her lips with my bare feet.
Her pure light is what I covet,
dancing as one to her heart beat.
There is a shift that begins to happen when you stop to really listen and observe nature. Everything in nature has a lesson to offer to those who pay attention. It’s about slowing down and noticing the way nature moves, sounds, feels, and vibrates (cue Colors of the Wind – “But I know every rock and tree and creature has a life, has a spirit, has a name”). It’s about discovering synchronicity, the sacred, the divine. Mother Earth takes on a whole new meaning and relationship once you realize that you and her are not separate but that you are one.
Listen in on the conversations that are taking place.
