A Psalm to Gaia

The Earth is my mother, I shall not want.
She nurtures me in green pastures;
She freshens me with flowing waters.
… She restores my body and awakens my soul.

Although I walk in the shadow of changing seasons and passing time,
I will not fear death,
For the essence of life is within me,
The peace and beauty of Earth comfort me.

She teaches me to harvest her abundant gifts,
She fills my heart with compassion,
I drink from the cup of simple pleasures.

As I look to the skies with wonder at the immensity of the universe,
I know I am blessed beyond measure to live all the days of my life
in the bountiful house of Gaia.

About kateeleigh

I'm not the greatest at this whole social media thing. I like face-to-face interactions. Phone calls, texts, random cups of tea. I work in some of Canada's most remote places, and I'm having a (not-so) secret love affair with my camera, who goes everywhere with me. When I'm not running away to the great outdoors, I like to read, play video games, and find the myriad ways I can annoy my cat. I'm the author and photographer at http://photomemoires.wordpress.com/ and I'm a contributor to Thalassa's Pagan Devotionals over at https://lectiodivinapaganus.wordpress.com/ Welcome to my world. Won't you sit down with a cup of tea and stay a while? View all posts by kateeleigh
