A List Poem for Earth Day
Julia Butterfly Hill
The trees are breathing while we sleep
The trees cover the hillsides now
The wild ones are watching
Above us, the falcons while and turn
The mountains come alive with wildflowers
The seeds break open and send forth roots
Someone is speaking for the ones with no voice
1. Defenders of the Earth. Those girls who spoke in chapel yesterday about caring for the environment, following in the footsteps of Carson and Shiva and Muir and Hill.
2. Lilies of the Valley
3. Brown Creeper
4. Making Mandazis. I have never made what I would call a truly successful batch until last night.
5. In-Service Day today (and my body sort of let me sleep in until 6:30). I like to have occasional days where we are working, but I am being fed rather than doing the feeding.
Much Love! May we walk in Beauty!
