Close To The Earth

The following poems are taken from the collection 'SHE', available to buy here.


Slow down
Said the Mountain

Soften into strength
Said the Flower

Sing your own song
Said the Bird

Let your wings take you
Said the Butterfly

Open your belly
Said Mother Earth

Send down your roots
Said the Tree

Open to me
Open to me

Breathe a deep breath
Go on Breathe

Let go
All will be well



Cast off these heavy cloaks
And breathe

Let them fall away into
The Earth
To become the dust of yesterdays

Step forth lighter
The sunshine combing your hair
Step forth into a new day

The Earth loves you
Love her back

With each step you make
With each breathe you take
Love her back

She is your Sister, Mother, Lover, Friend

She is You
