Happy Mother's Day!


Earth, our mother, breathe forth life
all night sleeping
now awakening
in the East
Now see the dawn

Earth, our mother, breathe and waken
leaves are stirring
all things moving
new day coming
life renewing

Eagles soaring, see the morning
see the new mysterious morning
something marvelous and sacred
though it happens every day
Dawn, the child of Mother Earth and Darkness.

Pawnee Prayer

That is a lovely poem! Happy Mother's Day! Our Mother's Day (in the UK) was in March but I knew it was now for some countries because my friend in Italy got me an Italian calender for Christmas and it said "Festa Della Mamma". It sounds so exotic!!

Hope you have had a nice day. Best wishes, from Meg and cats xxx
