I feel the weight of your existence.
Your steps marking me, reshaping my figure
With my warmth I keep you moving
While I move inside and out
The atmosphere
The clouds
The rivers
The ocean
The flowers
The seeds

All is here for you to take
I provide the garden and the shelter
I know what you might think sometimes, we’re stuck in here together, well, remember you chose to be born and come floating up to the surface
I support what comes and goes
I whisper and the wind blows the leaves of the trees

I’ve seen many generations harvest me and nurture me
The exact same way I breed, feed and love unconditionally these moving points full of life.

The word Mother suits me, for I gave birth to all of you.
