Earth Day 2020
A native bee visits a stem of prairie blazing star
in the native plant garden my husband and I created
as an oasis for monarch butterflies and other pollinators.
As we work to heal the earth, the earth heals us.

I really just want
to be warm yellow light
over everyone I love.

The very winds whispered in soothing accents,
and maternal Nature bade me weep no more.

All that I hope to say in books,
all that I ever hope to say,
is that I love the world.

May the stars carry your sadness away.
May the flowers fill your heart with beauty.
And may hope forever wipe away your tears.

Perhaps the most important thing we bring to another person is the silence in us,
not the sort of silence that is filled with unspoken criticism or hard withdrawal.
The sort of silence that is a place of refuge, of rest, of acceptance of someone as they are.
We are all hungry for this other silence. It is hard to find.
In its presence we can remember something beyond the moment,
a strength on which to build . . .
Silence is a place of great power and healing.
