The life of a flower is longing and fulfillment.

“With evening’s coming, the flower folds her petals
And sleeps, embracing her longing.
At morning’s approach she opens her lips to meet
The sun’s kiss.
The life of a flower is longing and fulfillment.
A tear and a smile.”

– Kahlil Gibran

Earth Day 2017

 

On Earth Day

Mother Earth prays

hoping we’ll hear her plea 

 

For it is through us alone

we can protect our home

for future generations to see

I’ve recently been enjoying the beautiful artwork of Josephine Wall, and when I came across this piece of hers, I immediately thought of Mother Earth and Earth Day.  It’s entitled “Sadness of Gaia” and if you click on the picture, it will bring you to the artist’s webpage and her interpretation/explanation of this piece.  To me it seems as if Mother Earth is praying.  Let’s listen…

Heartbeat

I’ve seen the sun disappear before my eyes
Just above the highest tide, but falling to the ocean line
And all I see is smoke, enough to make me choke
The world feels broken down

Counting the lines, the years are screaming louder now
And all the trees start falling down, the brightest lights are burning out
So I will run though fire to reach the other side
And turn this life around

And when the moment’s dead and gone
With every star I’m wishing on
With every right and every wrong
The lonely nights that take us all
For all the stones I’ve ever thrown
Another break against the bone
Close my eyes I’m not alone
And let the heartbeat take me home

If there is love raining down on everyone
We can break away and run like we did when we were young
And we could make believe this is all we need
To live for only here and now

So if the moment’s dead and gone
With every star we’re wishing on
With every right and every wrong
The endless nights we sang along
For all the stones we’ve never thrown
We can save these broken bones
Close our eyes, we’re not alone
And let the heartbeat take us home

Music Monday

I’m still feeling the call of the wild, and absolutely loving this song right now…

 

Something Wild

 

“You had your maps drawn

you had other plans

to hang your hopes on

every road they led you down felt so wrong

so you found another way

 

You’ve got a big heart

the way you see the world

it got you this far 

you may have some bruises

and a few scars

but you know you’re gonna be okay

 

Even though you’re scared

you’re stronger than you know

 

If you’re lost out where the lights are blinding

caught , and all the stars are hiding

that’s when something wild calls you home

if you face the fear that keeps you frozen

chase the sky into the ocean

that’s when something wild calls you home

 

Sometimes the past can

make the ground beneath you feel like quicksand

you don’t have to worry

reach for my hand

and I know you’re gonna be okay

you’re gonna be okay

 

Even if you’re scared

you’re stronger than you know

 

If you’re lost out where the lights are blinding

caught, and all the stars are hiding

that’s when something wild calls you home

If you face the fear that keeps you frozen

chase the sky into the ocean

that’s when something wild calls you home…”

 

~ Andrew McMahon

 

 

Such a great video for this song with the two children out adventuring, and I love the violin, but what I love most is the lyrics.  The words that really speak to me right now are…

 

“If you face the fear that keeps you frozen

chase the sky into the ocean

that’s when something wild calls you home

 

Even if you’re scared

you’re stronger than you know”

 

Whatever fears you may be facing, I’m wishing you strength and hope on this Monday, and as always…
