E is for Earth

This is one of my many earth-centered poems <3

Mountain
Strength rooted in the ground
Towered over me, majestic
Gentle giant standing proud
Emotion invoking beauty

Sea
The sun loves to play with
the sea, changing it to silver
Wind chases the waves, lets
Them play around my feet

Soil
My hands dig into the earth
Bringing in life, feeding it
Bright green plant finds
Fertile ground to root in

Forest
The wind teases the trees
Twirling down the scent of
The promise that spring will
Come, I look up and smile

Fields
Horses play in the meadow
Farmer tosses up earth with
His plough, new born lambs
Dance the promise of spring

River
Soft mountain water carves a
Meandering artwork in land,
One of it’s arms a forest stream
For trees to quench their thirst

Stones
The ancient henge rises out
Of the earth like it always
Lived there, part of her inner
Self she exposes to her children

City
Beloved city on the edge of
Land and sea, it lives there
As if she allowed it to be part
Of her creation, in serenity

Earth
She is my home, my art, my
Source of living, she carries
My feet as I move across to
Get to know more beauty
