As I walk through the forest deep, and look beyond through the trees.
As I watch the sunlight filter through the leaves, to give light through the darkness there, so I may see.
With every bloom, with greenery all around, I feel the softness of the grassy ground.
I fall to my knees to hold the earth in my hands, to breathe in the beauty that surrounds me.
I feel my heart beating as if I am one with the earth, and silently say say thank you Mother Earth.
For the air I breathe the water I drink, and fire that burns inside my soul at night, and the beautiful earth on which I reside.
As my heart fills with love and understanding of it all, even when I walk in the forest all alone, my Mother Earth is with me.
On each and every journey I take she is within my heart and soul as I awake, to see the beauty of Mother Nature…
