Mother nature...our first woman

Every day
in silence
opening my eyes
I pray

To every woman
to every female
to earth
to mother nature
to inspire every woman
everywhere
anywhere

To be able
to listen nature
to embrace her
to connect it with her
to feel it
to listen it
to believe
we are part of her

All of us
mother and sisters
grandmothers
of every nation

We are just one
one woman
one sister
one grandmother
one wife
one with nature

And I hope
every night
in silence
closing my eyes
my prayers
have gone
far enough
to reach
each of you
the ones reading this
the ones listening this
the ones being touch by this

We together
can make a whole new world
we must feel deep inside
mother nature
is talking to us
its silence
is also telling us
stories
from other times
in another languages

Just listen
just write
just pray
just wait

Every day
earth is telling you something
as today
that everywhere
we all
are thinking
in the femenine
in you
in me
in all of us.

Flowers and the whole universe for us...from the earth...from mother nature!

Serene and subtle

Such a serene and beautiful poem, Martha. You have in a very subtle way sang a song full of blessings.
"Flowers and the whole universe for us...." so true about nature and 'us' -- we wither, we bloom, we wither and we know we blossomed once into fragrance too!

Cheers
