The earth, round and rolling around the sun
old beyond ken, rolling with the punches
rolling with the tides of all the oceans
rolling with the ebb and flow of beings.
It slides through space gravities exerting,
the sun, the moon, the dark matter unseen
all keeping it on its path and axis
a respectable distance from its neighbors
This bright blue green dot so glassy and small
travelling through space so vast, black and cold
While we may eye Mars’ broad plains and ice caps
we hold earth close as mother, life itself.
We hold thee dear, earth, mother, spring of life
and wrap our arms around thee carefully.
