Dear Friends,

Give me that old-time religion – Druidism!

“Tree” and “truth” were the same word in both the Old Celtic and Anglo-Saxon languages.

Happy Earth Day, and celebrate responsibly!

 




Earth Day - April 22, 2016



Cathedral of trees
pray for us
flawless sky arching
pray for us
dark pools
in black mud
leaves wet and translucent
strength of their sap
pray for us
Silver disc moon
lodged in navy blue sky
following gold hunter moon
suffusing dim hills
pray for us
hard sun                                                                                             
by the edge of the forest
pray for us
cool light within
the shadow of ferns
cast on downy thick pine carpet
pray for us
rushing stream singing
against solid rock
silent slithering snake
wrapped around branches
green toad of the hidden pond
pray for us
sharp autumn air
trailing berry‑scented summer
pray for us
wild stag of my father’s name
birds of my mother
mother of all
pray for us
that we shall not destroy
that we shall not destroy
that we shall not destroy
