on the surface of our mother
in the cities built by man
many times it is so easy
to forget from whence we came

though the voices whisper
in our inner ear at times
when the silence helps us hear
urgings so sublime

yet the honks and sirens blowing
and the rush of day to day
may detour our awareness
keep quiet guidance at bay

so this mothers day I’m suggesting
take a moment to check in
feel the earth and all creation
and then earnestly within
