Earth is Mother :: I Am Mother
On May 27, 2015 by WildOmen
The Earth, my Mother. I come out of your womb, the Mother of a Mother. I am born knowing your breast.
You see the Earth is my Mother, but I am Mother too. Not the Mother of a child born from this body and flesh, but a Mother in Soul. I feel this tenderness when I walk upon you. The tenderness of a Bear. Like the marrow that runs through my bones.
And I feel the rage of a Mother too. The fervor of the storm. While I save my only child, I cry out for the help of my Brothers and Sisters. This is a fire that never dies.
You can feel it deep.
Great Mother, Earth. WE have birthed each other, you have birthed me from your loins. I know your breast well, but I am no longer a hungry child. I can see that you are growing old, and it is time for me to take care of you now. Like a child loves her Mother. Like a Mother loves her child. We care for each other.
I honor the cycles of life, that I can see with my own eyes. The child who grows, becomes the Mother of her Mother. A Mother that has given all of her milk.
A child forever, I cannot be a child forever.
I am Mother, a fire that never dies,
and I know my children well.
