Earth Day 22nd April

Mother Earth
Earth Day  Is a day for us all to remember and share in the celebration of what our Earth Mother gives to us.. and how we can take better take care of our environment. I also some time ago, wrote a poem on how much we pollute our Earth Mother, the poem was inspired by a major oil spill into her Oceans..
Remember the Gifts of Mother Nature and All of those whom you cherish and hold dear in your life.. Remember that each Breath we breathe..
 She gives us each breath..
Remember to love her and respect her..
For she gives us Life

Earth Mother
Black is the ocean, as the liquid gold spills
Black is the feathers choking seabird bills
Black is the day we pollute another shore
And Black is my heart as it aches with her sores..
Earth Mother, oh Earth Mother, we abuse you so
We ruin your waters, we ruin your glow..
Earth Mother, Oh Earth Mother, help us to see
How each hurt we inflict, hurts You and Me..
Tell me this, tell me true,
Why is man destroying You?
I hold onto your beauty, I hold onto your Light
Why do they not see the hurt of your plight?
The blackness is greed, which now spills from your depths
The seas of darkness, like hovering debts
Each is a mirror, in the conscious thought
Many not caring and think of you naught
My heart bleeds with you, I hear your cries
You weep endlessly from your skies
You howl and scream and belch out smoke
You shake us and rattle and blew as you spoke
But do we listen? To your words of woo
No we humans.. We think we know..
But soon your scorn, your wind and your storms
Will devour us, and leave us with no form.
And then our lament will wail like your Winds
Our Maker will show us the price of our sins
And our Earth Mother will cry, in her birthing pains
As yet another end-cycle begins again......

Seasons~Poems and my Artwork

Oh mighty brothers that reach up high
Your branches swaying in breeze from sky
Tell me as I sit beneath your shade
What wisdom have you for me today..
Spring one with your leaves so fresh
Your colours of green replenish and re-fresh
Your blossoms shower us in petals so light
From winters sleep you grow in delight
Summer Oh how you please
As you rustle your full grown leaves
Your breath so pure so we may breathe
I pray this Earth you never leave
Autumn of golden rich fruits you carry
To sustain life in harvest berries
Fallen leaves and wood for the fire
Replenishing larders, of you I never tire
Winter with your ever-greeen
In your forests shelter you bring
Silent and tall as you sleep until Spring
Lets not forget our brothers the Tree
Hundred of years they stand still and ‘see’
Majestic and strong they give life to all
Save our trees don’t let them fall.

Above are the paintings I did,while taking time out. Trees are so important, and I love nothing better to sit beneath a tree and meditate feeling its energy. Our Relationship to the Earth has changed as we have become more aware of how our actions can affect the balance of Nature, we are beginning to see ourselves as part of the Global Community and we are embracing a more heart-centred common goal of preservation. Trees are part of that community and we need to understand how important a part Tree’s play in our lives.. They not only bring us the very oxygen we breath, but they give homes to thousands of species of insects and birds providing not only food and shelter but the very habitat that those species need to survive, as well as food, fuel, and shelter for us Humans, When the trees start dying, then the insects have no home and also die, this has a knock on effect around the whole eco system.We must not forget we are part of that knock on effect. Trees teach us the importance of renewal as they shed their leaves and seeds, their outer achievements and find strength and vitality through a period of rest in the winter months, They teach us stillness, about slowing down, and finding contentment within. They show us the importance of having strong roots to maintain stability. We are destroying the lungs of the Earth as the many forests are cut down.. Hereis a site which explains what you can do to conserve Trees. Remember the ‘Standing Ones’ as they were once known, and let us remember they give us our very breath we breathe, we owe them a debt of gratitude. They need our respect. Enjoy your walks, Enjoy your Trees, and Enjoy Nature..
