hope

I know some days you feel like heavy snow on the first day of Spring. when you come down, you come down hard. but be what you are. who you need to be. soon the sun will shine and chase your storms away.

(as it always does)

don’t let them tell you how to feel. the ground is still underneath their feet. how could they possibly understand

what          you         need.

Mother Earth

Like the sun on my bare skin

on the first day of Spring

And the perfect piano solo and smooth vocals

in my favorite jazz song

I undress my soul for you

For your skies and blooming earth

I hear your song traveling on a falling leaf

And close my eyes so the sunshine can burn bright

Right through my heart

Finally, I understand

All the beauty of you

And I’m in love with all of it,

All of you,

Mother Earth.
