Inspiring Enchantment & Illumination with Tarot & Intuitive Guidance

Earth Day, Every Day!

A living planet is a much more complex metaphor for deity than just a bigger father with a bigger fist.

If an omniscient, all-powerful Dad ignores your prayers, it’s taken personally. Hear only silence long enough, and you start wondering about his power. His fairness. His very existence.

But if a world mother doesn’t reply, Her excuse is simple. She never claimed conceited omnipotence. She has countless others clinging to her apron strings, including myriad species unable to speak for themselves.

To Her elder offspring She says – go raid the fridge. Go play outside. Go get a job. Or, better yet, lend me a hand. I have no time for idle whining.

    my first adult poetry in honor of Earth Day & Poetry month

    Star*

    STOP…to Honor Earth by Sally Klein

    Today, I STOP…to honor Earth,
    From whom all life evolves.
    I feel the power enter my heart
    From roots run deep below.
    Heat from the fire ignites the spark
    Of passion, art and song.
    So I may dance the flow and move along.

    Earth’s creatures know the way,
    To sustaining nature’s balance.
    Only humans cannot hear
    Her heartbeat getting weak.
    We have lost the ancient wisdom.
    Now we flounder to survive.
    We must STOP…to honor Earth again.

    The few who hear her calling
    Commune with stones to listen,
    Near the last remaining virgins
    Under dark skies, stars and awe.
    Will we stop our wasteful plunder?
    Is there time to live in peace?
    Today, I dream a deep awakening.

    Reaching out in perfect trust,
    May we light the way with love,
    Release destruction, greed and war,
    Find ways to share all that remains.
    Embracing universal truth
    Today, I STOP…to honor Earth!
