Gaia ~ Earth Day April 22nd

Austria meadow 2008

Oh Earth Mother oh Earth Mother we come to you this day

We come to you in gratitude to honour you and say

Thank you for your bounties and wonderful gifts

For your rivers and your mountains and desert sand that drifts

Austrian Mountains and lake 2008

Your forests full of life from insect to humming bird

Thank you for all wonders like migrating wildlife herds

Of Wildebeest and Elephant whose numbers now decline

I hope you will forgive the errors of Mankind

4.1.1

I’m sorry for the pain, for the scars upon your skin

Forgive us for the wars we’ve waged,Mankind will never win

I wish I could take back all the poisons from your skies

And undo all the damage as we Humans tell our lies

Chemtrails6

I hear you creak and groan as you shudder and  you shake

I feel your falling tears in the rain and snow you make.

You show us with your storms the power you possess 

Oh Earth Mother  sweet Gaia your beauty you have brought

Please forgive your children whose damage we have wrought

cyclonecatarina

Your beauty in each flower in the Seasons now all mixed

Have we stepped beyond the boundaries our damage never fixed

Oh Earth Mother our Earth Mother we come to you with Love

We come to ask forgiveness as we remember we are One.

On April 22nd is Earth Day  Earth Day was founded back in the 70’s, We are all now more aware how our planet’s climate is changing, each of us have witnessed weather patterns that have gone haywire. We see daily the pollutants in our skies, Rivers and Oceans.

There are many things we each can do to help the environment, as we recycle, and embrace greener alternatives.. In our own area School children have been on a clear up campaign collecting rubbish from the streets, parks and hedgerows . Its also good to see the junior school with their own allotment  near our own growing their own produce learning how to grow their own food and care for plants and wild life.

One of the greatest things each of us can do which costs nothing and that is to respect Nature, take your rubbish home with you, Don’t pick wild flowers. If you fish don’t leave your line and hooks in the water.. Simple things like helping Mother nature along, planting Bee and Butterfly friendly shrubs and plants in your garden.

Encourage Hedgehogs who keep your slugs down by leaving gaps in your garden fences.  Many little things go a long way to helping Heal the World..  Respecting our environment in which we live and learning to respect each other will go along way to creating a better future for our Children to live and grow in our world..

Blessings

      I like your comment Pen… Just ‘Think’ being the operative word.. For we can all be g uilty of that error as we just don’t THINK enough about the effects we have.. We are so lucky here in the UK we turn on a tap and expect clean water.. we take so much of Mother Nature for granted.. and yet we do not see the fine balancing act that goes on to maintain a healthy environment..
      The Bees being just one who we are killing with pesticides and fertilizers.. Wishing you a great weekend Pen.. THE SUN is OUT! Yippeeeeeee!

    Sue that was lovely. I too wish everyone would stop and ask forgiveness then go about trying to be better stewards. Our slugs have been greatly reduced by the wildlife we have protected in the field while we work around their homes, leaving them some space. The little ones are learning quickly why nature needs protection, so hopefully the next generation will treat the earth better than we have.

      Yes I dislike picking wild flowers they are so needed in our hedgerows for the Bees and butterflies.. I read an article in the other day how councils cut the grass verges too severly and at the wrong time not allowing the windflowers time to reseed or bloom.. You go to places like Austria and all their meadow land fields are full to blooming with wild flowers.. the above photo is one I took in 08 and fields were like this for grazing cattle .. the natural meadow is now a thing of the past as the earth contains so many chemicals to kill off weeds none will now grow.. Such a shame! we loose out all ways

    Mother nature truly is beautiful and mankind has really made a mess of it. As you say, there are so many little ways in which we can help. Cleaning up ones own mess really isn’t so difficult. One simply needs to put some thought into ones actions.

    Dearest Sue, How beautiful! When we moved here I created a wildlife pond and a pergola at the side of the house and with a present of vines from friends in Belgium we now have a green shelter in the season hung with bunches of sweet black and green grapes that we leave for the birds and wasps to enjoy. Earth Day is special for me because I am a Taurus and was born on April 22nd. Many Blessings with Love, David

    Don’t think politicians see climate change as a problem, more of a nuisance, that won’t go away. Problems we find a solution for, nuisances we grudgingly tolerate until it becomes a problem. I think we’ve a way to go yet, before climate change is addressed, sadly.

      That was my mission with this blog, and my intentions have shaped what you read….. For we live in times that for many will be difficult in the very near future and I want to try in my own small way to open up peoples awareness as to the workings of this world in this reality.. At times I touch upon subjects others perhaps are uncomfortable with such as life after death… But you see there is no death.. not in the real sense,.. Just Life after Life….. 🙂 and should you wish to explore further look under my categories listings 🙂
