Earth

Earth

Everything is made of earth
the earth we walk upon

the rich mineral earth
that rises up within our bones

the sun-fed earth
provider of our daily bread

the animal vegetable living earth
source of the air we breathe

and of the water that runs
through our veins

and upon which every cell depends
Everything is made of earth

every whisper every word of love
every gesture every birth

and every death too
of the earth

to which we will all
– in good time – return
