Mother Earth

                    AM             MOTHER                             EARTH

The Christmas Paradox

Merry Christmas and all that stuff and don’t forget to write, Now if you would all be on your way I’d like a silent night. It’s not that I haven’t enjoyed your stay, I have you must believe me, I just wish that it were over now because your leaving would relieve me. I’d like to say that the magic of this day would be with me until I die, But out of respect for the holiday I feel that it would be wrong to lie. I’ve spent the time following you around and picking up after your kids, Putting food back in the refrigerator and closing up all of the lids. I’ve even picked up your smelly socks after making Christmas dinner, While you’ve all gotten fat it seems that I’ve grown that much thinner. But when next year comes you’d better be here to visit with Santa Claus, Don’t tell me that you’ll spend Christmas time over at your in-laws. Because Christmas is a family time and we all should be together, And you can tell your in-laws that you’ll be theirs on Arbor Day forever.

Jewish Arbor Day

The holiday has arrived 
The cheery festival of Tu'Beshvat
   Concern for nature's gifts 
lives on amongst 
    the Jewish people 
I recall an old cherry tree 
    behind my home 
I was saddened 
  when they finally 
cut it down 
  The gifts of nature 
should not be regarded lightly 
Le us rejoice 
    and feast on 
dried fruits, almonds and figs 
   We will enjoy 
   this Jewish Arbor day 
Shalom, yes shalom 
   at this joyous time 
   in the Jewish year 
Let's hope the world understands 
    the nature of this holiday 
   we should all 
pause for a moment 
   to take joy in nature's bountiful

A trail of birdseed lies near a birdbath in my yard Little friends of every kind have come for the reward Not only are the birds singing… yes, you guessed, it’s true… Now their friends of every kind are there singing, too. It’s worked out rather well… As harmonious bliss gathers every day A most amazing thing…the squirrels are growing wings along the way I just can’t wait to see them take their… first ambling flight With a little practice and time, I’m sure they’ll be quite a sight. Soon the little bunnies will be nesting in the trees so… I think that on Arbor Day I’d best plant more trees I think God might be laughing or evolution is on the brink I call it Devine Intervention or perhaps him giving us a wink

Arbor Day dawned bright.
Letting tree stretch his roots deep.
Broken by loves golden rays.

A gentle touch of her hand upon his chest
Brings "My Love Eternaal" to his lips
Certain that forever is here
Definately brings an end to the
Emptyness their hearts have felt
For a moment the silently cheer
Gracious that they were both drawn 
Heaven's light
It shines on
Janet tells a story
Kindly, this may not be true
Larry's mind begins to wander
Memories of Arbor Day
Nevermind, her story bores him
Otherwise she might have said
Pretty trees are found within
Quickly bring his mind back
Really now?   
Shall I go fix us supper? Janet asked
Trees that accompany your story
Until now were fiction, fable
Very sweetly he then spoke
Wonderment how fast they grew
X-rays should probably be taken
Years are usually required, but
Zeal means nothing is halfhearted
