She whispers my name... Only I can hear

EARTH

The Earth speaks
In whispers
So subtle
As to pass most by
Unnoticed

Or you would think

But you feel it
Even if you are not

Aware...

It troubles your dreams
And causes you
To lose your train of thought
Sometimes...

Buckminster Fuller
Once said



Let your notions
About what is
Go

Stand
At sunset
Feet wide apart
Face North

Arms outstretched
Due East
Due West
Free your mind
As you watch
The setting sun

And you will feel it

Moving




You don't always realize it
But the Earth
Is a traveler
Of cosmic proportion

And we
Are passengers

Spinning
Flying
Racing through space
Even as we sleep

Over time
Life
And the Earth
Became as one

Gravity
Magnetism
Radiation
And the elements

Conspired with sunlight
To shape life
From the chaos

We are a part of it
Not it's sole beneficiary


This beautiful thing
Is what she is telling you

as every atom in our bodies was once a part of a star...

there's beauty in being part of something and not the center of something ... very few know the joy of being anonymous, being one of many, being just a piece of the bigger puzzle ... and, of course, Bobbb you remind us :) that's good.

Interesting and thought provoking...

She trembles with MY lies
And melts with MY vice

and everyone asks,
"What's wrong with HER?!"

Funny you should mention - as this is something I am compelled to write about...

Honour
Beauty yes - and inevitability
And how big does the puzzle get?
The further I go – the more I see
More to come on the big picture J

Thanks Milady

Everyone should stop asking
And perhaps shut their eyes too

Then maybe they can begin to see
