Wisdom From Mother Earth
The past few days I've had the
opportunity to spend time in my garden.
With the snow finally melted,
I begin to assess things.
Joyful in the knowledge,that Spring is almost here;
I find myself saddened.
A favorite Plum Tree has not survived
the Winter storms.
I sigh as I gather the broken branches.
The remains of the tree will be cut down.
The energy of my tree will change form.
It will become mulch to protect & nourish my garden.
Firewood to warm the winter nights.
Maybe carved into Runes...
Although my Plum tree shall be missed,
There is a space to be filled with something new.
Perhaps an Apple tree shall be planted, maybe a White Fig.
Mother Earths "Spring Cleaning"
May we learn from her wisdom.
Change is inevitable.
We must release that which no longer serves us,
To make way for the new.
