Earth Day

  feel the earth run through your fingers
 smell the freshness of a rainy morning
  smell the tantalizing flowers
see the beauty that surrounds you.

 feel the coldness of water upon your skin
 earth drinks in the  freshness
water cleanses herself
 sustains all of life

 feel the north wind blow upon your face
see it whip the snow or ocean's waves
 see birds flying in the currents
Or feel it blow through your hair

 feel the fire in your veins as you look at beauty
 see the ring of fire that surrounds the planet
 feel her heat beneath your feet
she is the fire that burns inside

    Hello Phyllis :-) I'm taking this moment to wish you an early Happy Mother's day. Just in case, I can't hang around the soup past Saturday Night. May you enjoy all the blessings a mother engraves in our hearts. About your poem: wow, I love the theme. It just gave me a future contest idea. By the way this makes a great mothers day poem, because all the elements on your page are from her breath. soup-mail.. LINDA
