Celebrating Mama Earth


My first introduction to Earth Day was at college. When I went to this huge Earth Day celebration on the Mall in D.C. It was a wonderful day of learning how to go green and respecting Mama Earth.Since then, I feel Earth Day is a important way to remember the place we all share and live together on. I'm happy to see more people understanding the Earth is alive just like we are. She is not a dead thing floating in space. She feels just like we do. By healing her, we heal ourselves.

Here are two poems I wrote yesterday dedicated in honor of Earth Day.

We have one mother
Mama Earth
She feeds us,
Clothes us
Provides shelter
What have you done
For her?


The Earth
Kisses me everyday
She has birds sing songs to me
The sun to warm my skin
The blue sky for to dream on
Dandelions and daisies to make me smile


Enjoy your Earth Day. I'll be back tomorrow celebrating Shakespeare's birthday.
As always, Sweet Dreams to you all.

P.S. Yes, I do really hug Trees. They have magnificent energy which they are always glad to share.

Happy Earth Day to you, Shell!

Your poems are very sweet ... and apropos of the day!

Can't wait for your Shakespeare birthday post!

(Do you subscribe to Sonnet of the Day? I love it. I have, of course, my own collection. But, it's nice to have one sent to my email every day that focuses me on that particular one!)

Enjoy the day - and Mother Earth!

Such beautiful poems. What a wonderful sentiment. We need this planet and must learn how to be more responsible.

Take care, my sweet.
