Mother Earth (a poem for my daughter)

I am your mountain

I am your tree

I am your cave

I am your ocean

My breath is the sky

My feet are the roots

My forehead is the Moon

My laughter is the Sun

My eyes are deep wells

My heartbeat is the pulse of memory.

And you, Dear One

Are a shining pebble on the shore

Tumbling in the waves

And basking in the warmth

Of a summer day.
