of this Earth

Image“I feel completely at home in this Universe, which I consider a perfect marvel. When I look around at the Earth I see possibilities: grass, rain, rocks, dust, wind… I can clearly see, appreciate, and anticipate my future face in everything.”

– Alice Walker, The New Internationalist magazine

as i come to take a restful seat, i grow my roots down to find the Earth beneath me. having arrived at this place of rest, She then rises to greet me, blooming with dreams and dances. i too begin to rise on these little feet, dancing and stomping to the pulse of the ground beneath me — Coraz√≥n de La Tierra. wearing Her hundred different faces, the Earth and i both awaken.
