Spirit of Earth

O Spirit of Earth
I imagine you in all things
Alive in the sparkle of ocean, lake and stream 
In misty veils that hang on dawn like  lavender dreams

Spirit of Earth I’ve seen your breath arise
in secret places where clouds are formed
I’ve heard your silvery laughter as another stream is born
In magical forests that call forth flowers and leaves

In opal skies that cycle clouds to rebirth every Spring
Sweet Spirit of Earth lying in banks of blue flowers
Wonder, dream, and delight –these are your words
Words that bid new mountains rise,

convoluting deep confessions, like spells in violet eyes
in dark realms is your Spirit waiting to arise.
Like a collage of beauty- Spirit of Earth
with all your unknown mysteries

Your wisdom of renewal flowing through all things
Death is your slumber of symphonies unsung
Spirit of Earth in dreaming sleep,
awaken your miracles – remain forever young

    Such intricate descriptions of a somehow forgotten thing... Earth! The ball in space that we LIVE on. An appreciative and dreamy quality to this... you are such an intriguing poet, Suzanne! Never know what you will come up with next...

    Amazingly beautiful. Entire nature's beauty you have captured in 5 stanzas. rhythm flows through your words like in newly born stream. I have no words to describe how much Joy this gave when I read it. Thank you for sharing.
